“The outcome is an inescapably captivating and canorous combination of pop, rock and dance that’s certain to seduce a sizable listenership.” – Pure M

“It’s funky! It’s dancy! It’s poppy! It’s fast! Pulsating and rhythmic, “XO” might be the name of the tune but the band’s title might more accurately portray the overall tone of this single. Polished and peppy with just enough of a touch of indie rock to feel familiar” – A Journal of Musical Things

A Fun pop rock tune” –
