“...[Dialtone] is what happens when you take the pristine structure of the Pop song for indie kids, and roll it around in the street and dirt outside the punk club.”
"Trio of rockers fronted by singer/guitarist Paul Orea have a decided garage punk edge that glories in poking fun at the foibles of modern society and do so with good garage-y hooks and sly humor."
"...[Dialtone] have devised a simple, unpretentious, straightforward style of “New Wave/Grunge/Disco/Punk” rock that has a vinyl, nostalgic air...So, they've got a vintage sound while singing about the detriments of modern technology. A nice contrast."
“The drumming of Mike Orea is very good, borderline great. It is heavy when it is called for and delicate when the mood is right. Orea is one of the best indie warriors beating on the skins today.”
“Summer” is No Hang Ups first single...It is driving, infectious and hooks galore; totally worth a listen and probably, a download to the mp3 device of your choosing.”
“No Hang-Ups is their first full length album and it shows much promise. The band has an identity and a voice. ...they've got the ability to go far. This band will grow on you without a doubt.”
