“An atmospheric collision of feelings that sits somewhere between bands like Nothing and Rival Schools” – Noisey
“Ambient walls of feedback guitars strewn with hardcore-style riffs…a mightily impressive noise” – NME
“Masters of melancholy with a more modern take on 90’s alt-rock” – DIY Magazine
“Sweet vocals contrasting with fuzz-fuelled guitars make for a distinct sound from this remarkable band” – Artrocker

“I’m really excited about working with Simmer” explains Dog Knights label boss Darren Harvey “There are plenty of bands doing the whole ’emo / shoegaze crossover-thing’ right now, but these guys are genuinely doing something more interesting than the rest. If you like Nothing, Basement & Headroom, you’ll probably like this too!”
