"With unapologetic thrashing bass and booming riffs, it’s easy to see why Crash Jacket christened themselves with such a name. Fusingelements of dance, funk, rock and hip-hop, their music is an experimental clash of sound that will unbalance your feet and blow your mind. Kasabian-esque vocals with a tinge of U2 and face melting guitar solos" left lion Magazine 2012
