The Billboard
People throw around the word "original." They manufacture soul and replicate the status quo. The Smyrk has no interest in music as usual. We're equal parts Prince, The Police and Pandemonium. We thrash and croon. We spit and hump things. We write about bitter breakups, broken Boy Wonders and the Evil Dead. We represent the A/V club. We make the prom queen swoon. We'll make you proud to call yourself a nerd. We're The Smyrk. We're your new favorite band.

“You've heard nothing like this… welcome these new grooves with open arms. A call to all label execs or otherwise still reading: get interested in these guys.”
– absolutepunk.net

“Finally, a pop rock band that is not all whiny and emo-y… A tasty and refreshing treat. They're impressively
tight.”
– URB Magazine

“The band has youth, ambition, intelligence, and a grasp of rock music fundamentals in its favor.”
– popmatters.com

“A taste for nuance married perfectly with the all-out aggression of power chord rock. With a studio sound honed to perfection... The Smyrk deliver a live show that is all that and more.”
– Brooklyn Academy of Music

“That kind of band you don't just hear in passing. Real music with edge, appeal and a unique blend of personality.”
– Urban Mainstream Magazine

“Simply a sound that is different and striking.”
– rockpress.net

“Volatile and edgy. They now put soul into post-hardcore, playing jazz chords with the energy of a punk band. The band's garnering great press from far and wide...The Smyrk's going places.”
–New Haven Advocate

“We do believe that they've got something that's pretty special.”
– Play Magazine Philadelphia

“Polite but quite righteous.”
– The Village Voice
