    This is agonisingly personal music, poured straight from the heart--just as punk should be. It's a bonus that it's also frightening catchy.

    Phillip Taylor, Matt Scott, and Josh Swinney fuse together blood-pumping indie rock with an unwitting gift for power pop to craft a tight, fun-packed debut that never misses the mark.

    Cokefloat! is not always admirable but it's emotionally open.

    You can't help have a smile on your face when you listen to the excellent harmonious vocals of 'Sore Tummy', featuring Alice Costelloe, or the hilarious lyrics of the riff-tastic 'Pony'.

    Cokefloat! is a complicated punk album, all id and very little superego. It's not juvenile so much as it is childlike, and what makes it childlike makes it heartbreaking.

    While it's not obnoxious or invasive, it's also not the least bit pleasant, memorable, or new.

    7 leaning toward 8... Products of influence from their childhoods for sure, but along with the low-fi aesthetic, I also hear some of7 leaning toward 8... Products of influence from their childhoods for sure, but along with the low-fi aesthetic, I also hear some of Manchester's Stone Roses, never a bad thing. 'Pony' is a highlight for me. Expand
