„Sophomore album by Hey Karen is like carpet bombing. Just grand artillery with fat beats.”
„Hani created his own music genre, where music and vocals live in utopian symbiosis, and the artist himself has the most fun with it.”
„It's just a matter of time when songs like 'Kids', 'Head Like a Hole' or 'Knives' will become cult classics. Mark my words.”
Taken from review on Brand New Anthem: newanthem.pl/hey-karen-twerk/
„Hey Karen learned to write songs with such unpredictable structures, so now it's impossible to guess where his songs will go. Chiptunesque electro attacks you from the very start with its density, distinctly clear rhythm and clever electronic additions.”
