Pancakes and Whiskey CMJ Concert Review

I stumbled upon Canadians JPNSGRLS at Hotel Chantelle, playing a show that felt like a private show in a friend’s basement. Judging by the energy these guys played with, you’d think they were playing Madison Square Garden. One thing that’s for sure, these guys will definitely be playing much larger venues.” – Pancakes and Whiskey, Hotel Chantelle, New York, NY. 10/23/14

Concert Review: KURO, Music Matters, Singapore

“Harkening to indie-rock’s halcyon days, the band delivers a tantalising switchblade of progressive nuances and catchy hooks that endear themselves quite nicely to fans and critics alike. Their sound struck me as a mixture of Arctic Monkeys and Fall of Troy, with Christopher deCinque’s stage presence. Take that formula and give it the right mix, and it results in what the lucky audiences at Music Matters Live 2014 got – a firecracker of a show that blows you away, then makes you come back for more.” – Ignite Music Festival
