HobartWFinkis indie grunge rockwa disaffected punk aesthetic. Lead singer/guitarist Jayk Gallagher blends touches of X, Sonic Youth, Queens of The Stoneage, and Dead Kennedys with such disparate influences as Elliott Smith, Nirvana, and Ben Gibbard. The sound is characterized by crystalline vocal harmonies emerging from gutsy garage rock with sharp transitions and eclectic song structure. (Bass: Riki Olson, Drums: Scott Gettlin)

"The relationship tensions on ["Back and Forth Forever"] run ... deep as ... Jayk Gallagher and [former co-lead singer] Lauren Lakis trade off vocals and harmonize in some of rock’s fine traditions (think X, Sonic Youth and the Pixies ...) That ... [they] set their makeup/breakup to tasty indie/punk/’90s alternative licks make the audio voyeurism even better." - Buzzbands LA

"robust ... hard-driving indie-rock, spiked with ’90s-style riffage, tempo changes and twining boy/girl vocals" -- Buzzbands.LA
