SPIN:
“A haunting Jesus and Mary Chain rattle filtered through an anthemic guitar line as driven as something from another avian outfit, Doves.”

USOUNDS:
“Dreamlike, and at once melodically haunting and optimistic.”

SF GUARDIAN:
“This four-piece builds luxuriant canopies of shimmering guitars and propulsive rhythms reminiscent of British heart racers Doves and Elbow but bearing the intriguing twist of wounded vocals landing somewhere between Dean Wareham and Mercury Rev”

SOUND AS LANGUAGE:
“A quiet stunner of a debut.”

THE FIRE NOTE:
“An excellent debut, capable of winning you over with one listen.”

MOKB:
“Shoegazey, melodious with soaring guitar and an 80s pop feel to the vocals.”

LA TIMES:
“Spent a lot of time with the driving layered guitars of Mezzanine Owls’ “Slingshot Echoes”.”

BOTH SIDES OF THE MOUTH:
“Mezzanine Owls are dark, pensive indie rock, deserving of your listening pleasure.”

ANTIMUSIC:
“Slingshot Echoes is the best unsigned release since Clap Your Hands.”
