“One of the more intriguing releases in quite some time…seamlessly stitches together dozens of different influences into a cohesive quilt of modern pop…not a bum track out of ten!”
— Pop That Goes Crunch!
“The 10-or-so-piece New York band pillages sophisticated ideas—from its ‘60s chamber-pop forebears, from the Brill Building songwriting factory, from classic French pop, and so on—and infuses its songs with a healthy dose of drama, romanticism and hope.” —New Haven Advocate
“His melodies are classic, unfettered lumps of yum, his arrangements seemed plucked from a different era and on the whole, Perry Serpa and his NYC-based orchestral pop outfit the Sharp Things have a wonderfully timeless quality to them.” —The Spill
“Sporting a wavy timbre reminiscent of Gordon Lightfoot, Serpa swaths his nihilistic venom in a baby’s blanket of luscious melodies and panoramic arrangements — a Jimmy Webb for the disenfranchised.” —Amplifier
