The Billboard
"Quiet Little Voices is a rousing, sinewy, post-punk romp that crashes its way towards a Wedding Present-style duelling guitars denouement." The Guardian

"They’ve already perfected a sound that sits between post-punk and pop, soaring choruses saved from over-sentimentality by stark, even bleak verses." The Independent '5 bands to watch

"Much like label mates Frightened Rabbit, WWJP are all about the rugged reality of love, confusion, and creating visual music. Their closed eyes and open hearts carry ‘Quiet Little Voices’ tonight - and might well carry it onto radio waves too" Artrocker

"Blistering post-punk anthems of the highest pedigree: powerful and tuneful in just the right measures, with lead singer Adam Thompson's understated vocals keeping proceedings in check just as they threaten to spiral out of control. It's a definite statement of intent.” Q Magazine

“Rocketeering knapsacks gain the stratosphere-tickling booster of an anthemic Clydeside chorus, and we have lift off” NME

“Indie-pop pickery with brazen aplomb” The List

"An impeccable grab bag of influences and a miraculously accessible romantic sensibility." Skinny

"Seething with a newfound intent, their crisp, flighty choruses and sure-footed narratives are bolder and more purposeful than ever before" Drowned in Sound

"tedius, vapid and terrible" –a guy on the radio
