"It’s an absolute beauty. There’s hints of Foals and Wild Beasts in the melodic melodrama of the songs. The single is rapidly becoming one of my favourites of 2012, so I’m really excited to hear what they come up with in the future."
- Drowned In Sound

"Like Muse with all of their ridiculous bombast removed; or Field Music with catchier riffs; or Foals with better vocals."
- The Crack

"Prolonged instrumental sections and blasts of Thomas Cohen-esque vocals ensure that this track grabs you from start to finish."
- The Abacus Post on 'Boy Bruce, The Mighty Atom'

“Just awesome, beautifully constructed melodic songs.”
- Tiny Lights Recordings

"Great single."
- Bob Fischer, BBC Tees - BBC Tees Introducing

"Dark, brooding and mysterious - this latest release, from the Newcastle-based four piece, is the product of a band mastering their sound and pushing it into their own unique space."
- Music Junkie

"‘Boy Bruce, The Mighty Atom’ is a mangled pop/ Radiohead-style diamond of a tune, while 'Subtle Fun' is ringing with math rock goodness"
- The Crack

"‘Boy Bruce, The Mighty Atom’ starts off shadowy with a hint of Muse, but once the lead vocals kick in and the mighty drum-heavy build-up reaches its peak and reveal this four-piece really come into their own, a little math-rock infused with a hefty dose of memorable riffs."
- 7BitArcade

"The moody 'Boy Bruce, The Mighty Atom' has just the right level of experimentation to attract fans from across the spectrum, from Radiohead to Foals. 'Subtle Fun' is better still, the math-rock guitars bringing an appealing depth and variation, and the choppy rhythm shows they're no slaves to structures."
- The Sound Of Confusion
