Ari Shine / Press

"....the chewy, riffsmart arrogance and sunshine combination prove to be instantly likeable whacks to the gut for fans of early Costello and the Knack/ Raspberries school of gritty, radio-friendly guitar pop."

- WHISPERIN AND HOLLERIN

"Sharp, clean guitar pop featuring hook after hook after irresistible hook."

-TWANGVILLE (review of SXSW showcase)

"Like the Rocket Summer, Shine plays all the instruments himself and sings almost all the parts, but he never falls prey to the one-man band sickness."

-ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"...incredibly well crafted vignettes..."

-CLASSIC ROCK UK

"First song on his EP is about selling out to music and movie moguls in Los Angeles, but its riffs and/or hooks can be traced back to the Raspberries and Mott the Hoople."

-VILLAGE VOICE

"...the perfect debut album- sparkling with with, invention and some truly memorable pop tunes."
