about

'A noisy, assertive piece of work... energetic bursts all sharing infiltrating melodies and a fuzzy lo-fi aesthetic. Excellent debut album' Drowned In Sound

'There is much more to this band than immediately meets the eye. Not a case of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', more like 'let's make a few changes and see what we get'. It works, and there's absolutely no doubt that bigger and better things await' This Is Fake DIY

'These Wakefield youngsters bear their hearts with the help of some witty lyrical turns, powerful and melodic guitars, and a keen ear for a sharp and catchy pop melody. The themes of nostalgia, love and loss on Linked Arms are completely universal, and when these ideas are wrapped up in a package as energetic and as joyous as Linked Arms, you can’t help but get caught up' SCAN Online

'The sort of pummelling indie punk that demands your attention and is best savoured in the sweatiest of clubs' We Were Promised So Much...

'Melodic vulnerability and fuzzy, straight to the point energy' Sweeping The Nation

'You can’t ask more from a debut record... If in ten years time someone told me that Linked Arms had been the soundtrack to their summer of 2011, spent drinking in parks, skating and starting a band then I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest' Rhubarb Bomb

'[Can't Lose Lover] is lifted head-and-shoulders above its contemporaries by a hook that you’ll have trouble dislodging after even one listen' Music Fan's Mic

'The Band have created an album with track after track of lo-fi, shouty, indie-punk with occasional leanings to heavy guitar freakouts' 8/10 Punk Rock Ist Nicht Tot

'The pop sensibility that comes out through each demonstrates why they've got the likes of Radio 1s Huw Stephens raving about them' Vibrations

'A reflection on the underground scene that hides behind it's popular mainstream breed' 7/10 Tasty Fanzine
