OK4U Review: The Star (The Scene) 20/11/09
This is a promising debut album from a Dublin five-piece who have already gained a reputation on the Irish scene as being an amazing live act - with their impassioned mix of rap, rock and electronics. Experimental moments such as Impossible Is Nothing and Come Home - see rapper JMC lead the way and weave trip-hop influences with their own unique, raw style. Sexy lead vocalist Hazel Peters shines on the more direct, in-your face indie cuts like Hot 4/5****

OK4U Review: Road Records
The debut album from this dublin based outfit features a selection of dubbed up funky rock sounds dipping into some kind of hip hop rock hybrid at times. Taking influences from the likes of the Happy Mondays, Alabama 3, Basement Jaxx and Groove Armada. Its full of good time funked up rock sounds

Angela Macari O’Looney
“Like the cover art of the new album, this band is colourful, harmonious and vivacious and will continue to gain new supporters”
