"Sit Down Sky’ is an intense album full of magnificent rock tracks that are full of depth and raw power. This album is predominantly a rock album, with fast-paced songs that demonstrate brilliant musicianship on all instruments, particularly drums. The aspect of the band’s sound that really stands out is Claffey’s voice. His singing style is highly unusual, and he has a very nasally tone when singing. It takes some time to get used to, but his voice fits with the music wonderfully well, and contributes to creating a truly unique sound." - Goldenplec
"I’ve seen this band play, and whatever the music lacks in originality, is more than made up for with sheer personality and the lost art of just having some fucking FUN while rattling out their own brand of 90s influenced grungified punk. Actually, to a fairly empty venue, they played like it was the last days of Rome" - Chew Your Own Fat
The lads have enjoyed playing with some great acts like Giveamanakick, Fighting with wire, Axis of, Gascan Ruckus and many more.
