"Gritty noise pop that brings to mind The Lightning Seeds, early Jesus And Mary Chain and The Psychedelic Furs.
The lo-fi drum machine and single note filled guitar parts give "Bruises" a lot of charm. "Empty" is a much darker track delving further into the realms of noise while "Solaris (Love Dies At Dawn)" puts an evil spin on textbook Spector like girl group songs as the track has an underlying menace that's matched by few.
I love the overall feel of this E.P. As dark as it is there's an immense feeling of hope and determination throughout. "

"The Poetry Book o lo que es lo mismo el duo que componen Chris W. y Soul R. nos muestra su carta de presentación con un EP de 3 canciones donde los sintetizadores adquieren un protagonismo esencial.
Bruises nos adentra en el noise pop con voz subyacente y ruido electrónico que para la ocasión se acompaña de un ritmillo melódico de lo más pegajoso. Empty supone una apertura, un universo más abierto que finalmente culmina en la sugerente Solaris (Love Dies At Dawn.)"

"What I get from this is a pretty explicit venture into Pop. Where bands previously would try to blur the lines a bit, the Poetry Book owns their Poppy structure, but clouds each individual element to make for an explosion of sound that doesn’t assault you, but rather sweeps you up and carries you with their songs. It’s a cool approach that really makes you think about things like Shoegaze and Dream Pop a bit differently."
