Praise for Spielbergs
“Physical intensity, gooey emotions, and devotionals that are joyous.” – Pitchfork
“Big, heart-on-sleeve guitar-rock with a go-for-broke anthemic intensity.” – Stereogum
“They’ve perhaps made the best debut of 2019 so far.” – NME
“Joyfully ragged, emo-esque, power-pop songs.” – The Guardian
“An amazing band” – Dan P Carter, Radio 1
“Fans of fuzzy, propulsive cathartic jams, are about to have a new favourite band.” – Kerrang!
“Pummelling yet melodic guitars batter you round the heart with nary a pause for breath… Full of huge, lung-busting, shouting-into-the-wind vocals and relentless drums, guitars and everything else, cheerily-titled new single ‘We Are All Going To Die’ shows little concern for restraint.” – DIY
“We Are All Going To Die” is encased in a relentless soundscape of drums and guitars, owing its all-encompassing musicianship to shoegaze that is underpinned by a distinctly emo heart.” – The Line of Best Fit
“A roller coaster ride of rollicking riffs, descending and ascending with a luminous fury and friskiness, before delivering us back home again safe and sound, but breathless.” – 405
“An alt-rock banger, ‘We Are All Going To Die’ is a lot more fun than it sounds.”– Dork
“Guitars drill down at all angles, while the pummelling percussion sounds like a cement mixer trying to chew up a steel beam.” – CLASH
“It offers the kind of swaggering, punch-drunk escapism we used to spend all our time wishing for in our teenage years, while making it feel utterly achievable even now we’re much older and far more cynical.” – Gold Flake Paint
“One of the most exciting bands of the year.” – The i Paper
