"After listening to Southbound Drive's debut EP Agnes, I must say I enjoyed the album very much. The songs stand out with lead singer Scott Collins's strong delivery, the band's high degree of musicianship, and overall excellent melodies. Southbound Drive shows much promise for the future, and are definitely a band to keep on any listener's radar."
“Scott's songs sound authentic yet very modern, and he delivers them with a sense of urgency. The music has that mixed-up blend of beats and influences that it seems can only happen in Austin. The songs stay with you, and that's a good sign.”
“Marigold a slice of warm-hearted American rock that’s nicely anthemic with quick step and a sense of passion that’ll quickly instill a sing-along sensibility in even the most hardened naysayer.”
“Southbound Drive deliver a genre-bending ass-whooping unlike any I’ve ever experienced before...With a debut as eclectic yet focused as ‘Agnes’, it’s anybody’s guess as to what manner of great heights Southbound Drive are fated to scale in the years to come. ”
“Southbound Drive make music that reminds me of being 16 again. They make music that captures you from the first notes and refuses to let go. -”
“A staple of the Austin, Texas music scene, Southbound Drive is one of those bands you should have heard about long ago. Their music harks back to the more innocent days of rock, and imbues a lot of folk elements in order to achieve its good natured, mighty flavorful, and ultimately unforgettable sound.”
