Reviews

"This is a creative band at their free thinking best." - Fix magazine

"they play a beautiful set of folk-drenched indie. Stunning strings compliment the catchy tunes, such as Speakeasy. With sniffs of Johnny Flynn and Show of Hands and a George Ezra-esque growl to his vocals at the end, it makes for compelling watching." - Bristol 24/7

"Suffice it to say that The Lasting Days is head and shoulders above the countless multitudes of bands wallowing in the quick sand that sadly becomes the average situation for the majority. With a sound akin to Andrew Bird and song structures heartbreakingly reminiscent of an upbeat Nick Drake, it is difficult to find fault with this opus. A piece of work destined to ease the pain of not just the growing pains of teenagers, but also the sadness of life itself. The depth of emotion, the skilful wordplay and painstaking instrumentals means October, Looking South demands a wider audience and here’s hoping the band get it. Make this a staple of your record collection." - Suit Yourself magazine

"The Lasting Days have already developed a sturdy reputation for their well-crafted brand of melancholic indie/folk and electrically charged live performances... their first CD, an eponymous 5-track EP, successfully capers around several musical modes, from rambunctious knees-ups to heartfelt piano ballads" - Suit Yourself magazine

"Bristolian Indie hopefuls hint at bigger things... Displaying a maturity and crafted know-how that belies their short existence, "The Lasting Days" is a promising display and certainly a name to watch out for." - Americana UK "One to watch" - Venue

"Their energy was infectious" - Bristol Evening Post

"The Lasting Days play with an enthusastic, knee-bending verve... immaculately played" - Venue
