"They have a knack for taking an acoustic route, but go for the jugular by doing so with electric guitar and vocals that’ll catch you off guard. There’s organized chaos here. Noise is layered with melody and rhythm…the sound goes where it wants, and Followed By Static is having fun at the helm."
-- Laurie Gallardo, KUT 90.5
"[O]n their five-track Demo*lition EP ... their point of view is quite clear: they like airy, pretty guitars combined with a good amount of dirty. "Lullaby" begins with an almost joyously poppy guitar snippet that gets slapped with heavy screeching after just twenty-something seconds, but happily, the effect is intensifying rather than just jarring. "AADC" is overdriven overdrive; in comparison, "Bloody Arrows," though much more toned down, is immensely rich, capturing the same eerie hollowness of Neil Young''s short riffs in the soundtrack to Dead Man."
--Marianne Do, Space City Rock
"[E]xcellent understated guitar lines, killer vintage drum machine; one of the best ATX duos not heard enough."
--Ish, Coma In Algiers
"They''re working on the art of sneaking in melody where it struggles to take root, and abandoning a tune for grit just as the ear begins to settle. There''s nothing but everything familiar about this group, and we''re anxious to see how their sound develops."
-- Paige Maguire, The Austinist

"Their dark and throat-swallowed vocals provide a nice juxtaposition to the play-time percussion and spare, wandering guitar, and, with austere lyrics like "I don''t care to / see the light," it''ll be interesting to watch how it comes together live."
-- Nick Courtright, The Austinist
"The newest layer of noise was brilliant. Full of intent, it grew like a mold over the noise and beat superstructure. Every aspect of their musicality threatened to negate melody and rhythm, pushing me to grasp at a dwindling theme or the last note of a groping guitar solo. Then they adopted melody - a singsong background guitar - and a strummed rhythm. [E]very easily grasped measure was driftwood on an angry ocean of noise."
-- Dylan Miracle, The Daily Texan
