STEREO EMBERS MAGAZINE:
stereoembersmagazine.com/the-eighth-next-twenty-post-punk-bands-you-should-know-about/

"... chiming guitars span nimbly over ominous basslines and a clarion, declarative vocal, a formula that nearly always produces an irresistible euphoria..." - Dave Cantrell

RIDE THE TEMPO:

“… Girlfriends and Boyfriends have come up with the lost soundtrack to every John Hughes movie… Post-punk sensibilities are in play, and the music has that ‘reaching for the future’ feel, even though it is a future as envisioned from a Thatcher’s Britain perspective. It’s as if early U2 used synths rather than rock guitar or The Smiths aimed their street poetry at the club crowd. So there is substance, to be sure, but it’s still all danceable. Molly Ringwald, where are you?“ - Mark Anthony Brennan

THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT:
www.straight.com/music/585541/girlfriends-and-boyfriends-our-garden-deserves-your-attention

"...Proceedings kick off with 'A Flower', driven by Grant Minor’s Peter Hook–indebted bass-playing. Pete Pano­vic’s effects-drenched guitar shards, as heard on 'Forgiven Lust', could have been lifted from a Killing Joke or Chameleons record, and drummer Adam Fink’s rolling toms on 'Hearts Undone' and elsewhere suggest he has a Cure record or two in his collection... [The album] sounds a lot like an old new-wave-era record, [but] it doesn’t sound exactly like one... [It bears] the sonic signatures of producer Felix Fung... a founding member of the like-minded Mode Moderne. That alone gives [it] an 'indie rock circa now' sound, and the band’s impressive chops and solid songwriting ought to be enough to earn your attention, even if you weren’t around when The Head on the Door came out." - John Lucas

"Minor’s Morrissey-esque vocals interweave with rock and roll riffs and the haunting ’80s sound of strung-out synthesizers." - Lily Keenan

“Desire runs on overdrive with memories that consume… new romantic synth and 80s guitar pop pomp saturate the scene with a stern and serious pop goth aesthetic… ” - Sjimon Gompers
