    Golden Grrrls (despite actually having a bad name) made an album that embodies the best things about C-86-derived indie pop (warmth, innocence, honesty, community) and doesn't skimp on songs that make you want to get up and jump around the room with a big silly grin on your face.

    This isn’t the kind of thing you’re going to put on when you’re amped-up for a night out. But as far as sunporch indie punk goes, few albums constantly hit such sweet highs with sincerity.

    By no means reinventing the wheel then, but not about to carelessly buckle it either.

    Golden Grrls have put out a happy, smiley little record that doesn't overstay its welcome.

    It'll never be your favourite album, but you'll wish your adolescence sounded as carefree as this.

    The bursts of bright energy and amateurish enthusiasm on Golden Grrrls shine on wondrously for several minutes, but after a while the limitations of stunted musicianship and repetitive songwriting take over.

    Golden Grrrls exists in a limbo more grey than beige that apparently doesn't appeal to anyone. [Mar-Apr 2013, p.103]
