“A pop album with a deep, innocent heart that tackles the uncertainty of the future [with] incomparable Spector/Bacharach/Wilson-esque melodies.” - Vancouver Sun

“Scott Walker has a gift… [Grey Eyes] is alive with brass dominating and arranging subtleties… [with] a respect for songwriting values à la Burt Bacharach.” - The Province

“Dropping the guitars altogether and adopting ’60s orchestral pop, à la Tin Pan Alley and Pet Sounds… It’s a welcome return from a too often overlooked gem in Canadian indie rock.” - Exclaim!

“I love everything that the wind section and standing bass bring to the sound of [these] formerly simple pop rockers… this is definitely their best album so far.” - In Your Speakers

Grey Eyes is a record of sublime beauty and infectious brilliance.” - Tuesday Guide
