  • Summary: The co-ed Washington, D.C. indie-rock foursome make their debut with this 11-track disc produced by Brian McTear.

  1. Positive: 3 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. The resultant songs encapsulate the pop-rock aesthetic that made The Strokes' debut so much fun; every tune is tailor-made for dancing.
  2. The band's music is comparable to early Police material that everyone mistook for punk. [Jul 2004, p.146]
  3. 70
    Full of the sort of twitchy New Wave pop that really gets the hipsters' hips a-shaking. [Jun/Jul 2004, p.148]
  4. Catching Looks shows promise, but Washington Social Club needs to minimize the structural repetitiveness on future releases, and maybe pony up for a production style with more physical oomph.
  5. WSC specialize in Elvis Costello-y power pop and caffeinated danceability. [8-22 Jul 2004, p.126]
