What they're saying - Cool Noise Website - 'Intense and claustrophobic music from Bradford. Extra proof, as if anyone needed it, of the Leeds/Bradford axis of musical accomplishment. More edge than a very edgy thing.'
Vibrations Magazine - 'The Hoover Dams create refreshing indie Rock'
Frantic Corduroy Website - 'What is this low-fi loud guitar love-in and where has it come from? Bradford, apparently. it's catchy, it's interesting, it's a little dark and it sounds like the track was recorded on an old Memorex cassette found under the passenger seat of someone's car - but the lo-fi feel goes well - it's a bit dirty and you want it to be that way. Who wants to feel all shiny after some gritty loud guitars? More like you need a shower and a good scrub. But hell, you're alive' 9/10
Mono Magazine - 'Hoover Dams swirling unison riffs engulf the whole club - its fucking loud and its fucking good ... there's depth, intrigue and more importantly DANGER here ... Go and see the Hoover Dams soon.'
