‘I challenge you not to instantly fall in love with ‘Cafe Disco’ and The Harriets. This is a song to take you straight back to youth. A great live band too!’, Glastonbury Emerging Talent.
"To me, their song television sounds like a lost classic recording from This Is: CBGB’s era New York, which in my book is high praise indeed”, Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music.
