Jim Carroll - the Irish Times
"Limerick-raised, Dublin-based indie kids pushing a rock/pop line with interesting hooks and riffs in the mix. “Curtains” is their strongest calling card to date, a tune which best catches what lead singer John McDonnell’s voice can do."
Hot Press - The 50 Irish Acts You Have To Hear
"You’d be forgiven for mistaking Limerick rockers Animal Beats for a group of rabid David Guetta soundalikes, but misleading name notwithstanding, this fresh-faced foursome deal exclusively in rock ‘n’ roll, straight up. Citing Biffy Clyro, Thin Lizzy and Kings Of Leon as influences, the industrious foursome will already be known to readers in the south-west, having qualified for pretty much every band competition held in the Munster region in the last three years, and winning a couple along the way. Singer John McDonnell is the lone absentee from the madness, his syrupy croon clashing brilliantly with the hearty riffs and roaring rhythms."
