“SIX YEARS - "THINK DARK FOLK STORIES AND DREAM-POP ALLOYED TO LEONARD COHEN, JOHNNY CASH, BRIAN ENO, NICK CAVE WITH PJ HARVEY AND YOU’LL BE GETTING A SENSE OF SIX YEARS AURAL MANIFESTO * “Ever wish The xx had a bit more bite? Then you’ll love the sultry undertones of indie pop duo Six Years;. They mix a Raveonettes feel with the work of the aforementioned Mercury Award winning band to create a layered yet intense atmosphere that actually goes somewhere””

Drunken Werewolf

“SIX YEARS “Quite the fantastic, raw indie rock duet, think Mark E.Smith dueting with PJ Harvey””

Deadly Music.

“SIX YEARS “sounding like a dark hearted Serge and Brigitte performing a psychedelicised spell craft over Animotion’s ’obsession’ this honey just smoulders with intent”-”

“This album is my album of the year by a mile...I love it... Superb. .... it's got Kraftwerk, New Order, Joy Division, Gary Numan, Yeah Yeah Yeah's, Blondie all mixed up in there. Bring it on. If I could rate this album out of 10 I would give it 12....Brilliant!”

“A ‘nu wave’ band that has lasted? (Their album, ‘In Miniature’ was released back in 2006, Klaxons heyday). Eighties disco-esque pop with female vocalists? Heck, even Britpop? Try as I might Rubicks refuse to slot into any easy journalistic categories. Vanessa (the line up is 2 boys and 2 girls, which might help explain the pendulum of extremities that sometimes appeas), delivers the vocals in a manner that reminds of Shirley Manson of Garbage or Nina Persson of The Cardigans, or a Creme Egg... seemingly strong shelled, but brittle with a vulnerable centre. Combined with the synths swirling around the feisty guitar riffs the whole thing has a bold sense seductive perilousness. A heady tune that will cause serotonin to race around your body, when the ears really tune into the lyrics (of a loved one dying), and mind and body are torn as to what is the right response, and this fissure of emotion is evident throughout.”
