Phoebe Nir. Red Tape Nation.

“Set to a stomping, first wave punk cadence, Nir rants and hisses over the chaos. Fittingly, she lashes out at the current political majority, bringing notice to environmental issues, police corruption, and LGBTA rights. In true Lydia Lunch style, she bends the whole thing around a sort of ’50s sock hop style, which makes everything that much more ghoulish.” – PunkNews
“An onslaught of fuzzy guitar riffs, off-kilter vocals, anti-authoritarian morals, and riot grrl attitude.” – Verbicide
“A kaleidoscopic collision of vibrant sonics and Nir’s peppy-punk vox that leaves the listener feeling breathless, dizzified – and alive.” – Big Takeover
“Nir brings a joyous flare that exhibits her true lust for life and introduces her diverse vocal range.” – NewSickMusic
“Colorful cabaret with a racing mind and rushing melodies.” – The Autumn Roses
“Spunky.” – RebelNoise
