The culmination of numerous influences and talents that have
come together to form a memorable yet unpretentious pop-rock
release that is bound to please fans of a variety of genres!
"Hard driving complex power pop/rock. This is the debut full-length release from Britain's Kyoto Drive (they had previously released the EP Spotlights and Stars). It's chock full of the kind of loud hyperactive buzzsaw pop/rock that teenagers love. The guitars are loud and up front in the mix...but what may surprise many folks are the vocals. Even though they play really loud with everything turned up to the max, these guys aren't afraid to sing on key...and much of the material contains wonderful multi-layered harmonies. Ten rip-roaring cuts here including "Transitions," "Notes From Look Out Point" and "Waiting"." --Babysue
"Bittersweet vocals, clap-along breakdowns and pure pop choruses swirl around like a musical E-numbers, leaving you on a sugar high. Songs such as Fighting Talk, Transitions and I'd Give It All echo Taking Back Sunday, with deepchugging bass lines, fast and fiery guitars and cute 'n' quirky lyrics ('Sweetness there's a heart inside your dress'). This Birmingham four-pieces debut is rock with a huge, sugary dose of pop, and entirely unapologetic about it, offering 10 brilliant, uplifting songs that are sure to go down a storm live. If we liked a flutter, we'd put a fiver on seeing their name around a lot more this year." --Kerrang
"It's songs like this that make me think that there is a creative spark left in this world." --Alterthepress
