A few choice review quotes:

“A sinuous and sinewy, slow motion collision, or collusion between The Human League and the kind of raw, but silkily menacing records that Dennis Hopper would make, you know. This is almost impossibly classy, cabaret, disco, darkness, big words with meaning. Is it any good? Yes, yes, yes. The riff for “Ode To Harry Dean” jags and chimes against the shrieks and everyone we loved yesterday can be killed, a lot. Post War Glamour Girls are it.”- Unpeeled

“The most exciting new band I’ve discovered … Pixies-ish extreme dynamics that transitions between dark ferocity at times and a poetic lullaby-gentleness at others.”- Lost at E Minor

“There is a brooding charm that shines throughout the work of Leeds based fourpiece Post War Glamour Girls. The band seem to channel a similar energy to fellow avant-garde rockers Wild Beasts. What seperates them however is a demented sense of menace that builds as the song progresses into a cataclysm of rage towards the conclusion. The sounds of Post War Glamour Girls might be a bit of an acquired taste, but its one that you would savour again and again.” – Metaphorical Boat

“a bit like a young Nick Cave fronting dark math-indie with the melodrama turned up to maximum. “Spitting Pearls” is a prime example, building up to a swell of duelling post-rock guitars and singer James now howling like a man possessed as bassist Alice sings softly as if to try and soothe his catharsis.”  – Music Dash
