"What makes Birds — even more than 2016’s Actual Entity — so enticing is the Chen specialty: it locates a landing where his command of post-punk, soft psych, frothy Creation / Flying Nun undertones and wanly melodic vocal can meet over espresso. Brightly solid and subtly magnificent."
— The Big Takeover
"Explores all manner of ’60s baroque psychedelia, full of chiming guitars, harpsichord, a wide array of organs and synthesizers, and dips into krautrock and other studies...gorgeous and bewitching."
— Brooklyn Vegan
"How the Allah-Las would most probably sound if they were to get in touch with their feminine side. Bullseyes are hit with effortless frequency and such heady quality, resulting in an aural creation of unerring beauty."
— Shindig! Magazine
“Splices together lattices of salacious Histoire de Melody Nelson-style funk and Broadcast’s retro space-pop, over which Brice’s airy Sarah Cracknell-meets-Kate Bush tones glide with a calming confidence… insistent drums, fuzz-tone guitar and luxuriant keyboards imagine Stereolab cutting some rug in an almost baroque fashion."
