‘One of the best acts currently grafting away on the scene, and championed by members of The Gaslight Anthem, Phenomenal Handclap Band and Thumpers – it’s a name and an EP you need to get all over before they explode inevitably and become the next hyped up young white meat.’ – Subba Cultcha
‘Magpies and Vagabonds are one of the most exciting and talented new bands in music today.’ – Street Rock Review
