"Mike G Presents, NYC Promoter"

"You'll hear many music industry execs talk about the X-factor, it's the special thing that differentiates an artist or a band from mediocrity and from being stars. These guys are stars. It's very rare to find a band that can really connect with a mass appeal audience yet still have an original and rocking sound ...All I can say is go see them live and you'll understand." - Mike Guerriero

"Kaj Roth"

"...very atmospheric music and singer Daniel Dean has a warm and emotional voice ...they write music that breathes longevity...strong songwriting skills indeed, my compliments to the band!" - Melodic.net

"David De Young"

"Dmitry Iyudin's guitars and Daniel Dean's vocals helped raise my spirits as much as my coffee and the sunshine. There's a universality in their lyrics, passionate, inspired, and delivered with sincere, smooth precision that help make these songs instant contemporary anthems." - HowWasTheShow.com

"HIP Video"

"3RD CULTURE display a remarkable level of musical sophistication for a relatively youthful band. The textured guitars layered over deceptively simple rhythms gives them a sound that's lush, intricate, but far from cluttered. This is some really expert musicianship.

The best thing they have going for them, though, is probably Daniel Dean's voice. He's got a rare combination of emotional communication and power that is perfect for their songwriting style." - Andy Gesner


"3rd Culture successfully follows the formula institutionalized by U2. The music is raw, the energy is high, and the choruses are anthemic. This is what radio should play - rock with a hook AND a melody. "Heartbreak City" screams "Gossip Girl" and that’s a good thing." - MICHAEL SLEZAK, Entertainment Weekly


"Multi-format hits waiting to happen in Heartbreak City, Radio and Heaven. Great vocals, great production, great sound - what else do you need?"

- (RYAN T. FREDERICK, VH-1 International)


"3rd Culture may span the globe but at heart they are a true American rock band with Top 40 sensibility and a non-pretentious demeanor. The EP highlights their 80’s vibe with a modern edge. Standout tracks include "Radio" and a cover of The Psychedelic Furs’ "Heaven". An energizing set likely to please the college crowd and young-at-heart alike. Perfect soundtrack material."

- (DOM LECONTE, Sony Networks)
