"It’s compulsive, it’s dancefloor gold and it’s down-right filthy in parts…a back-to-basics hip-shaker of a debut."
"With its energetic guitars and catchy woah-oh-oh chants, “Levels & Lovers” is a solid lead single that sounds like one of those infectious tracks that gives a car commercial instant street cred or a song that you’d Shazam expecting it to be the new single from an already established band, but are shocked when you find out it came from a small, rising star from Tennessee."
"Eight Knives is a relatively new band, and have come on the scene strong this year. Having composed a solid repertoire of original music, taking it to the stages at JJ’s Bohemia and Track 29, the Knives have proven their live gig chops."
“It’s almost as though Kings of Leon and Jack White walked into a bar and created Eight Knives. Yes, I’m willing to say it’s THAT good. 8K has found the perfect combination between White’s distinctive, back-to-basics/ too-good-it’ll-never-be-on-the-radio rock and KOL’s also-good-but-radio-ready rock."”
"White Stripes + whiskey"
"Their debut album Maiden Names sits somewhere between Jack White and Vampire Weekend"
