"…Already inviting comparison to acts like The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, and maybe a dash of Stars. They show a knack for wonderfully punchy and melodic pop-rock gems that demand you sing / hum / tap / strum and/or shuffle along to their infectiously melodious guy(s)-supported-by-girl vocals. A seriously impressive act…"
"[From] humble beginnings in early 2010, Roosevelt Radio's "sparkling synth rock" has splashed across the San Francisco indie scene with regular performances at some of San Francisco's biggest venues like Slim's and Café du Nord. Its 'wonderfully punchy and melodic pop-rock gems' (San Jose Examiner) invites comparisons to indie-to-mainstream bands The Decemberists and Phoenix."
"The six songs on this EP are fine works of yearning, melodic, emo-boy rock, complete with piano vamps and guitar distortion."
" The members of Roosevelt Radio, a next-big-thing band in its infancy, wear their influences shamelessly on their vintage suit jacket sleeves. And while many bands today are taking pages out of the Arcade Fire playbook, Roosevelt Radio takes their well worn crayons to them and colours in the spaces between the lines. The end results are carefully crafted hooks, peak and valley dynamics, and an overall pop sensibility that is easily accessible on the first listen but rewards further attention. Not bad for a band that’s been together less than a year."
