“‘Everything Breaks’ manages the uncommon trick of being both lovely and urgent…an elegiac litany of facts, descriptions, and/or circumstances, creating a kind of beauty-meets-tragedy atmosphere” — Fingertips Music
“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!
“This album is rich, deep, full, and at times revelatory. And yet wasn’t recorded in a studio! This is Orchestral Pop of the highest order. It’s The Mamas and the Papas with strings. It’s a more contemporary, less preachy Blood Sweat and Tears.” —Berkeley Place
“Their music suggests they would feel just as comfortable in the concert hall as they would on college radio…a breath of fresh air in a music scene overcrowded with cookie cutter artistry.” —Silent Uproar
“Gorgeous opener “I Will Always Be Swimming In This Sea” is Prince, Mercury Rev and Sgt Pepper-era Beatles, the epic “Vacationing” is Tom Waits, Todd Rundgren and even a little bit Coldplay, and the pained, soaring “Precious” is the Bad Seeds meets Philly soul with Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis on vocals. Delightful, the lot of it.” —NME
