“From the opening strains of “Smalls,” to the last of the twelve songs, “Oh No Echoes,” Circulation is an enjoyable collection of the catchiest alternative songs at the rock end of the spectrum to come about in a long time.” 5/5 – Good Night Magazine
“Still, hooks abound, leaving one thinking that there’s still a lot of puppy in these boys, so the future holds promise.” – The Georgia Straight
“These guys not only know how to play their instruments, they prove they were not grown in a lab, but were most likely stuck in one with a pen and a pad as Dr. Dre would say…” – EWest Music
“The album’s intricately arranged rock ‘n’ roll is a wonder to behold, pulling together strands of ‘90s alt-rock (Smalls) and the post-punk revival (Circulation) into the perfect modern rock sound. JPNSGRLS have recorded one of the highlights of 2014.” – Today
“The first eight songs are arguably some of the strongest rock songs of 2014 and signal the arrival of one of North America’s most charismatic new acts.” – Absolute Punk, 9.3/10!!!
“In just the first four tracks of Circulation – the Vancouver quartet’s full-length debut (released by Light Organ Records on 15th July) – JPNSGRLS (pronounced as “Japanese Girls”) clearly demarcate what makes them so special in this age of pristine pop hacks and artless copyists.” – Power of Pop
“From the frenetic sounds of ‘Smalls’ and ‘Mushrooms’ to headbangers like ‘Brandon’ and ‘Brace Yourself,’ JPNSGRLS provide listeners with a collection of songs that run a range of emotions and styles. In other words, there’s something for just about everyone.” – Diffuser
“First song “smalls” has a classic indie Rock vibe – picture the Arctic Monkeys, but still jamming out in their garage.” – Performer Magazine
