“laced with a nostalgic vein running right through its hazy core – Like some snapshot of summer, the song almost wilts under the weight of winter but such sentiments are diluted by the new video which adds a big dash of charm to the whole piece, somewhat transforming the track in to a wistful and stirring reminder of summer” ~ GOLD FLAKE PAINT

“NEW & NOTEABLE: Jangle pop just like REM used to make from a Toronto indie supergroup” ~ BANDCAMP DAILY

“think 60s pop, think Paisley Underground, think early R.E.M., The Go-Betweens or even those initial Creation Records 45s – Anglophone guitar pop that nods towards its influences while stepping patiently out on its own path, ‘Seeds’ is the sign that bright things are about to occur. Hit play now.” ~ CLASH (UK)
