“There are a lot of other elements here that make things interesting: this is compelling psych-goth rock that's dark enough to be credible, noisy enough to be truly edgy and punchy enough to be entertaining. As an added bonus, lead singer Nathan can pull off some seriously high tension cadences a la' Nick Cave - something that pushes the songs' climax to thundering heights. The guitar work in the EP is also pretty impressive, ranging from stabs of pure noise to fuzzy walls of sound, to simple acoustic parts to psychedelic, blurred background textures. If you like some sonic horror in your music, keep an ear out for these guys.”
“New York City's Grassfight puts out a surprising amount of sound for being a trio. Their debut EP finds them at the beginning of what could be a promising career if they can expand their fan base beyond the Joy Division fanatics. But whatever incarnation critics are calling their style these days, what Grassfight have is the potential and capability to grow as artists and songwriters, and eventually reject the labels new bands get stuck with early in their careers…Singer Nathan Forster's baritone vocals and guitar playing fit nicely in establishing the overall mood, but it is in drummer Mark Demiglio's innovative accompaniment and bassist Tamsi New's subtle harmonies that show how writing more collectively mature songs will make this band a force to be reckoned with outside of New York. Keep an eye out for future releases because Grassfight is off to a hell of a start, and from the sound of it, they will definitely have something vital to contribute to indie rock.”

“Grassfight is not only a concentrate of vitality but also talents in the service of music and worked skillfully arranged. The group belongs to this young New York scene whose bubbly fluid deserves only to explode into the open.”
“Their music is pulsating like blood in your veins. Hypnotic Mark`s rhythms are complemented by a deep, shoegazing sound of Nathan`s guitar and monolithic T. New`s bass. All of this together create a truly fantastic picture, the last strokes of which are bright T. New`s back vocals and the recitative, tenacious Nathan`s vocal.”
“Think Interpol in dance shoes. There's a sharp, chilly stare here, perfect for days where the sun sets too early, but beneath it there's a witty groove and a wry smile.”
“...it was a real treat for those of us lucky enough to be in the room. They captured our undivided attention. Their songs are sort of hypnotizing...
