BILLBOARD calls the album Mad Crush: “An aural performance piece, nuanced and quirky—with Ray Davies and more Gilbert & Sullivan than David Bowie.”
POPMATTERS: Elderkin and Sattin play off of one another with an instantly infectious melding of charisma, heart, and sass. Thomas' fiddle, flourishing in vibrant colors, brings songs alive.
Americana Highways: “Whimsical… endearing country with amusing pop. Rhythmically complex music, with a touch of an old-timey bluegrass feel.”
B-Sides & Badlands: “From beginning to end, there is a theatrical bravado to the record, sewn with real human truths of romance’s exhilarating highs and troubling, crippling lows.”
DittyTV News: “Imagine if R.E.M. teamed up with June and Johnny…”
Two parts June Carter-Johnny Cash along with one dash of Itzhak Perlman on a midnight hayride, Mad Crush sings about fussing, fighting, and sometimes making up.
