"On Out of Earshot, the Dead Girls defy the trendy lo-fi aesthetic of the moment and instead serve up a slick-sounding debut. That's a compliment. A sea of distortion would have obscured every sweet riff, sick solo and perfectly placed vocal harmony. Though the band often aims for a sound that's larger than life, a couple of downbeat numbers bow to Big Star and the Replacements."
"Despite their seemingly angst-derived name, this band plays bubble-gum filled powerpop, the likes of which modern music has not seen in years, if at all. Taking a page from R.E.M. and Elvis Costello in some ways, The Dead Girls will alternate between aurally punishing your ears and soothing them with a light touch."
"From the sassy stance of “You Ignited” to the soft-spoken realization of “She Can Turn It Off” where the vocals carry just as much weight as the soaring guitar parts, The Dead Girls write songs that span a dynamic range. They rock full on like young guns when the spirit moves them, but also capably shift gears to slower tempos without weakening their game."
“Kansas City's Best Live Band”
"Out of Earshot is probably the band's most polished and hook-laden record yet."
"Rocket Heart Records has put out a gem of a record here, and it's even an actual record. Out of Earshot is a warm, friendly, inviting recording, and it's the sort of music that just sounds better with a little bit of crackle running behind it."
