Neptune's Core • Bunga • 2023

"Their age belies the sophistication of the songwriting and instrumentation...classic alternative era with delicate fragile quiet moments exploding into loud dynamics."
"[On 'Called Upon'], The songs have a kind of ineffable delicacy, and when each of them builds, as they almost always do, into a powerful climax, none of the parts get lost or seem inessential."
"The EP’s measured performances focus the frenzy of Neptune’s Core’s earlier work without sacrificing its charm—they’ve advanced dramatically in their handling of pacing and dynamics, making this their most accomplished release yet."
"A described as a cross-between alt-rock and singer-songwriter tunes with strong harmonies…like a mix of Soccer Mommy, Fiona Apple, The Bangles, and Vivian Girls with smart arrangements and terrific lead vocals. Powerful indie rock that transcends their youth…echoes the sound of great women’s rock like Courtney Barnett…such a pleasant surprise.”
