“Grass House are a band that can send shivers down your spine” Chris Pattinson (Black Cab Sessions, Music Week)
"there is actually something quite Modern Lovers-esque about vocalist Liam Palmer’s strange, slightly unwieldy, but oddly compelling lyricism" The Line Of Best Fit’
“It’s as if the National recorded in the same cabin Bon Iver used for For Emma, Forever Ago and their influences suddenly turned to Fleet Foxes, early Leonard Cohen and even a bit of Captain Beefheart.” Can’t Hear My Eyes
