  1. They may not be quite as distraught as Smith was, and they certainly opt not to strum as fast as he did, but the shared sentiment is still there. And on The Unfazed, that sentiment carries a savory beauty.

    You'd be hard-pressed to find better noise pop/rock than this in 2011.

    They have made a marked improvement from their 2009 EP, sounding more assured and confident. Every song is played with enthusiasm, and it makes for a blissful, hazy experience.

    All in all, Friends for Now is an impressively strong debut that exceeds even the vast expectations of those fans primed on the band's introductory singles and releases.

    While this is an atmospheric record, it's also upbeat and poppy enough to encourage dancing or at least vigorous head-nodding.

    Their personality-bereft voices take on a chameleonic quality in which, when surrounded by the accompanying music, they eventually become nothing at all.

    There are some cacthy hooks buried deep in the goop. [Feb 2011, p.72]
