GoldFlakePaint "Armed with a post-punk attitude but underpinned by a reckless shoegaze edge, the track hurtles through it’s near-four minute journey at break-neck speed; emphatic, often dazzling and armed with the kind of punch that you won’t be able to forget for long after the track has drawn to a close."
Abduction Radiation "This track is shoegaze-galore. It’s the perfect mix of shoegaze and noise rock, and it’s just enough noise rock that it carries a melody rather than endless noises."
Austin Town Hall "Honestly, this might be one of my favorite new things from the label in recent months; it’s got that swirling jangling guitar I love so well, but the vocals bring in a smoky male vocal, touched up by a nice female counterpart, and I’m in love."
When You Motor Away Blog "Mumrunner plays an explosive version of dreampop and shoegaze. Gauzy tones and layers of sounds are punctuated with alternative rock elements, resulting in a dynamic listening experience and suggesting a wide range of possibilities for future songs. "
