THE SHALLOW CALL
'If you like your music sophisticated, dark and edgy then The Shallow Call may just become your new favourite band.8/10'
'Crucial, tempestuous, seismic. A stupendous bastard of a cut. Imagine Loves 'Alone Again Or' ravaged, emotionally racked, bruised and bloodied but refusing to kneel in surrender. Awesome stuff, single of the missive.'
'The Shallow Call are all cool haircuts, classic sounds and dark seduction. They remind us what Jason Pierce might have sounded like if hed have spent more time with the MC5 instead of the Staple Singers, spikes and spoons'.
SOUNDS OF THE CITY
'The Shallow Call, then, are a name to whisper with some reverence. Their dark, enigmatic guitar pop suggests they should be wanted men with a price on their collective head'.
WHISPERIN & HOLLERIN'
The Shallow Call are great. Line for line, song for song, The Shallow Call are a band with limitless ideas, great songwriting talent and above all, a solid band that can actually play'.
LEEDS MUSIC SCENE
'The Shallow Call sound like the finished article. They are a tight unit and each song is delivered with an ever increasing snarl and attitude. All they are missing is a recording contract. If the darker end of the musical spectrum is your thing then give The Shallow Call a spin they could well be your new favourite band'.
'The Shallow Call look every inch like a rock band. They play, with every single decibel like a rock band. And they have all the right tunes, just as any real rock band should have.'
'Incredible, epic and euphoric rock & roll.'
'Dark, vivid and beautiful are the lyrics. Hypnotic calm and tranquil one minute to a disarray of grunge and rock and roll. This whole demo wreaks of a heavy night out, their songs telling tales of love and death and all thats in-between'
'This is a bit like The Strokes, but with less of the NY swagger. In it's place they add a fair bit of Sonic Youth noisery - their sweet pop songs are interspersed with mad bits of feedback and chainsaw guitars'.
'Emotionally charged real music with real feeling and its going to steal your soul'.
'Loud. Gritty. Raucous. Snarling. Divine. The Shallow Call are a hurricane-force band, axeing and grinding their way into your music collection. There isnt anything I dont like about them. Theyll satisfy your need for eardrum-bursting rock in a heartbeat, and youll love every second of it. Loose Lips Sink Ships is impossibly good, so good that it almost hurts.'
