'epic, glistening electro pop' - We Are Noise

'This is some seriously catchy electro-pop goodness, though beneath its blissful exterior is a rather intellectual core'. - Stop The Lights

'we have absolutely nothing but praise for this guy' - We Talk, You Die

‘Distant Chimes, the title track has a hazy electro with big synths and thumping drums....So is this Ireland’s first chillwave tune? Carles to comments please!.’ -

'For fans of Washed Out, Neon Indian and Deloreon, it's essential listening' - Ragged Words

'Dublin-based production whiz and probable evil genius...' - Hot Press

'Chillaxed electro from Irish producer Trophy Boyfriend. It's got a rich synth, 80's pop feel about it, not unlike Cut Copy or Tiga.' - Pop Goes The Radio

Both styles are distinct and impressive. But he’s not just a musical wunderkind, his lyrics are often just as impressive as his computerized creations. Just check out the stunning bravado on lyrics from 2009′s “Black Ship” - Their Bated Breath

'apartment-sized slo-mo, hazy shoegazelectronica' - Irish Times

’...there is a catchiness here that’s impossible to ignore. Ballsy lyrics make this sucker move.’ - Citizendick
