  2. 8.1 |   Gig Soup

    There are no debut album nerves from this assertive bunch and Shea’s forceful vocals together with Lasse Lokøy’s punchy bass lines are memorable features of just about every track

  5. 8.0 |   The Skinny

  7. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Filled with as many finger-wagging, tell-it-like-it-is moments you could expect from a band who has publicly endorsed Noel Gallagher’s press antics

  12. 6.5 |   Earbuddy

    Cheery, pop punk for people who claim to not like pop punk

  13. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Sløtface are a pleasing antidote to the cluster of guitar bands being peddled in the UK, drawing more on the grunge of Wolf Alice or the Riot Grrrl attitude of Sleater Kinney

    Polemics and partying
