"Expansive, energetic and anthemic, it's a Godzilla-sized monster boasting melodies that could level a mountain" - HotPress

"Olympians is so good, I had to listen to it 3 times"
- Dan Hegarty 2fm/ 2XFM

"This is high-energy, exciting alternative rock with uplifting catchy hooks and plenty of forays into heavy guitar moments. On paper that may sound difficult to achieve, or even a recipe for disaster, but Olympians is a class EP and demonstrates the talent these guys obviously have." - TXFM (Dublin)

"Wouldn't it be cool if Queens Of The Stone Age collaborated with ASIWYFA? And what if it was produced by Matt Bellamy? That sounds positively beastly, doesn't it? Could it ever happen? Probably not. But you know what, it doesn't need to as such a combination was under our noses all along. Galway’s Race The Flux have been making a name for themselves on the live circuit for some time." - Golden Plec

"The Galway lads unassuming stage presence is the perfect foil to the assured sonic assault they're capable of unleashing. They truly are ones to watch" - The Ticket, The Irish Times.

"On paper, the heavy guitar riffs and gentler sounds shouldn’t work, but it’s clear that Race The Flux are one band that didn’t even glance at the handbook."
