    This is cold-blooded revenge pop that strikes like a shard of shattered plate to the heart.

    It's very good indeed, throwing in splurges of psychedelic colour, a hatful of great songs and some almost baggy grooves. [Apr 2014, p.105]

    They have finally assembled a terrific debut full of scuzzed up guitars, dirty synths, nihilistic lyrics and wood's magnificently bored--though never boring--vocals.[Apr 2014, p.71]

    Whilst the songwriting skills are still being honed, Soft Friday represents a solid step for a promising duo.

    Coves' flair for drama sometimes outpaces their ability to write memorable songs, but Soft Friday's best moments are so good, and its overall sound is so vibrant, that it's a more than promising debut.

    Coves have put together a good record that takes the listener for a joyride through a psych pop paradise, but once the ride is over it just doesn't quite stick.
