“celestial spacey rock a la The Mars Volta” – Noisey

“A uniquely soaring sound that traverses everything from Drive Like Jehu’s wiry guitars, Sigur Ros’ ethereal beauty, early Jane’s Addiction’s outer-space hard rock and myriad others.” – Exploding In Sound

“excellent proggy post-hardcore in the vein of bands like At the Drive-In and Glassjaw, though a bit on the spacier side.” – Brooklyn Vegan

“A noisy and energetic breath of fresh air” – Sputnik Music

“Their modus operandi is a paradox that works off tension and release, exhaustion and redemption- producing songs that are satisfying but also exciting…Boyfrndz stands out amongst the rest of the crowd.” – Prefix Magazine

“Features propulsive rhythms and atmospheric shredding …, while evoking the progressive math-core tendencies of like-minded artists Omar Rodríguez-López and Bosnian Rainbows.” – Exclaim!

“Meticulously crafted and with serious cajonnes, Austin, Texas quartet BOYFRNDZ deliver a sophomore effort that exists at some shangri-la like crossroads between Afghan Whigs, Mars Volta (when they aren’t being unnecessarily wanky), and perhaps Coheed and Cambria” – Ghettoblaster Magazine
