Autodrone / Press

“While a lot of bands are still mining the post-punk sound, long after reserves have dried up, Autodrone brings helpful reminder of when guitars were loud and would rupture and indie kids’ ears at thirty paces.”

“Another thing the festival was missing was the moody darkness. The festival lineup seemed more concerned with Dayglo shades, happy pills inserted as suppositories and moonbeam smiles. Autodrone are none of things thank fuck. As their name suggests, what they are is a bleeding wall of distorted guitar noise with gothic female vocals and lyrics. Imagine if my bloody valentine started writing songs for children’s cartoons. I might not get Zola Jesus or Fever Ray this year, but these guys will make up for it…”

“At times haunting and at other times crushingly huge, Autodrone's intricate songs float gracefully along the surface and then attack when you least expect in an almost devastating way.”

“...Strike a Match proves Autodrone to be a band of remarkable skill and great promise. They have what it takes to make it big, so keep an eye on them in 2009.”

“Moody, very moody. Alternately pretty and darkly intense...AD is the audio equivalent of what you see on a restless night as you just begin to touch the edge of sleep.”

The New York Press

"Mangled Beauty"

Village Voice

"An All Out Assault!!!"


"All attempts to make this an unbiased review are gone; I am in love with this album! ... The perfect playlist for a walk in a wet garden at night." (10 out of 10 stars!) -

“Strike a Match is an astoundingly accomplished and confident piece of music...there's a raw energy and very honest feel that permeates every song on the record.”

“Strike A Match definitely deserves greater attention – it is a first-rate set of shoegazer psych-rock combining distortion-drenched guitars, electronics and Katherine Kennedy’s sweet vocals for songs that range from catchy dream-pop reminiscent of Curve and Medicine to noisy ambient instrumental”

“Autodrone is possibly one of the most inventive, talented, and (importantly) musically committed bands performing around NY at the moment.”
