    It's a debut that both dips and dives heavily but benefits from a strange lack of artfulness. [Feb/Mar 2014, p.75]

    Unapologetically sullen and raw, Girls Like Us is a strong debut from a band with a lot to offer.

    They retain enough of their own identity to sound fresh. [Nov 2013, p.114]

    It's not a perfect record in any sense (the occasional lyrical couplet falls awkwardly), but within such punk atmospheres, flaws perversely become strengths.

    Inarticulate, perhaps, but indubitably exciting. [Oct 2013, p.72]

    It’s gripping, and we suspect the follow-up will be truly special.

    Overall, this is an album full of promise, poise and brio.

    The record is everything you’d expect from a PINS debut, with a little bit extra tacked on. Mostly, it’s a belligerent beast, boasting bravado and a torrent of guitar swarms.
