Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.96) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[G]enre-juggling, bedroom-dance-floor magic cut with moody-boy lyrics..."

Spin (p.98) - "[L]ocomotive live beats and star-crossed guitars spar with perpetually pulsating synths."

Entertainment Weekly (p.81) - "[L]ike the best dance parties, there are several opportunities to shake, sweat, and hug your neighbor." -- Grade: B

Q (Magazine) (p.119) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[M]elodies are doused in perky percussion and bashed pianos, with scratchy riffs, big basslines and scattered electronics thrown in to boot."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]linky debut single 'Pumped Up Kicks' neatly splices Steve Miller Band's 'The Joker' with Peter Bjorn and John's 2006 whistlefest 'Young Folks'..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "The songs dodge and weave stylistically, avoiding perceived critical jabs by scavenging pop history for new old sounds."

Clash (Magazine) - "There's a fuzzy warmth to 'Torches'....This is a feel-good hit..."
