REVIEWS From publications:
"the debut Lines Across Lines EP (Octopussy) is suggestively named after the James Bond novel/film character portrayed by Swedish born ex-model/actress Maud Adams. Where else but in 1983 could one find something that sounds so familiar (pinches of post-punk and New Wave juxtaposed against an indie pop-rock sound that recalls Hershey, PA's the Ocean Blue) .......You can't miss the band's melodic influences, but even as Octopussy could have been released to fanfare 25 years ago. With knockout numbers like "If People Could Be Reset," "Instead of Standing Still" and the hot "House of 1000 Glances," it still has a really nice edge to it."
"The quartet plays crunchy, melodic indie rock that manages to keep things groovy, even on the darker tunes. And in the chilling "Letter to a Dying City," singer Chris Wright addresses his Cleveland hometown: "It feels like the only way to get anyone to notice is to say goodbye." We prefer this grand hello."
""Octopussy", released digitally at their iPod release show,....is an artful seven song disc that showcases the stellar vocals of frontman Chris Wright..."
