What others have said about Prawn:

“The swelling guitars and call-and-response yelps have earned Prawn any number of designations, but they’re less beholden to a genre than to a state of mind, or at least an inversion of what Real Estate does; whereas the latter use their gorgeous, ringing guitar patterns and a masterful economy of words to fondly looks back on their hometown, Prawn imagine the impossible vastness of the future and an unknowable, pervasive current sadness…”- Pitchfork

“Prawn has refined its sound, trusting itself to remain softer and subtler, often coming close to bridging the gap between emo and indie the way Death Cab For Cutie did over a decade ago.”- AV Club

“…a call-and-response epic that offsets its small-town sadness with starry-eyed ambition.”- Spin

“…Prawn have always had a post-rock side, but they’ve rarely sounded this downright pretty…”- Brooklynvegan
