"Before I go to shows, there are two questions in my mind. Do I wanna dance or do I wanna close your eyes, float and get lost in a sea of feedback and alt-rock psychedelia?

"Finally... something has come out of Brooklyn that isn't drenched in miles of reverb. With Sursum Verbo, there's no need to throw in all that extra fluff.

"Their sound is post-punk, I guess.. They reminded me of Title TK-era Breeders... They reminded me of the Talking Heads or Television or any other angular band that uses the tools of traditional rock and roll and tries to push something new out.
