The New Kinetics / Press

"An ass-kicking band whose charismatic frontwoman might remind you of Karen O."

Peter Holslin - San Diego CityBeat

"Song after song on Contact will have you singing along — or wishing you had Bardot’s pipes so you could."

Owl&Bear

"Good old fashioned garage rock, filtered by the likes of T-Rex, The Small Faces and The Kinks, it doesn’t get better than this. The group (from San Diego’s South Bay) drips attitude from the opening track, “How the West Was Won,” with singer Birdy wringing more angst out of the repeated phrase “come on” than some bands manage in a whole career. Each track builds on the previous one, while elements of punk, powerpop, new wave, mod and rock weave in and out. Yes, the New Kinetics wear their influences on the their sleeves, but in this case that’s not a negative, as the they have the spirit, energy and song writing skills to back it up. Whether you are a fan of any of the above mentioned genres or just looking for a band with a serious kick, this album won’t let you down. Great band, great songs."
