"This CD is so up my street I've given it my house keys and told it to put the kettle on...A F***ING WELL GOOD CD..."
Dai Jones, Mass Movement Magazine

"This is a quality debut that demands your attention, now go discover."
Ben Hughes, UberRock

"...we're left with an unexpected grin on our faces that means their work here is done...set alight this firework and watch it fly. (8)"

"...a sound which is unlike any other bands out there, it's unique and what's more, it works."
Dave Nicholls, Loud-Stuff

"One thing's for sure there's nothing amateurish about cleverly titled debut First Offence, in fact it's pretty impressive when you consider it was created by a band that only formed in February 2011."
Sophie Lidyard, RoomThirteen

"...11 tracks of focussed fury."
Mike Price, Vibrations Magazine
