Praise for KNESSET:
"An incredibly mature album...The ten songs are beautifully played...reminiscent of early compositions of Death Cab For Cutie."
- Rolling Stone (Germany)
"'Coming Of Age' sounds more like early Death Cab For Cutie or The American Analog Set - all warm Rhodes piano, propulsive drumming that wouldn't sound out of place on a National album, and Americana tropes seen through plaintive, jaded young eyes."
- NME (UK)
"I can't stop listening to them...they make crushingly beautiful layers of indie brilliance."
-Wait For The Click (Jen Long of BBC 1)
"'Coming of Age' is such a compulsively listenable record. It is the sound of being heartbroken on a beautiful day."
-The Line of Best Fit (UK)
KNESSET is available for interviews and Coming of Age review copies can be made available upon request.
