Genshen proceeded to startle and amaze with their ability to reproduce their lush atmospheric pop songs with such clarity in a live setting. Not many bands are able to create the layered pedal and synth driven sounds like Genshen do in a studio setting, let alone in the notoriously difficult live setting. On stage with the band was a varied mass of guitars, keyboards, effects and telephone microphones, which produced a futuristic yet familiar (think martians meets My Bloody Valentine meets New Order) sound. by Andrew Tutts - Oz Music Project


My dear, dear, Brisbane. Whilst Genshen redefined 'pop', you all slept at home:/ Nine golden, golden stars. I'd heard stories about the wonders of the Genshen band wagon, and have been waiting ever so long to finally jump aboard. But, boy, was it a joyoius ride. ... Their current single "Love is on the Radio" paled in insignificance next to their newer tracks. I'm not sure what the last tune was, but hot damn - it's a corker! New Order crossed with Flaming Lips, equals my new favorite band. by Hanns - Brispop.com


Quite simply, Genshen are a revelation. Love is on the Radio (their debut single) is a dream: a majestic, heady ride from start to finish. Nothing local's sounded this good for years... This is music steeped in music's history, an obvious labour of love that somehow escapes sounding derivative. Frontman Quentin Brown's vocal stylings are beautiful, floating above and around vintage synths, shabby guitars, spot on bass and drums. B-sides Find a Roost and Thermodynamic just make you wish this was a long player. A kind of Slowdive-meets-The Underground Lovers-and-everything-good-in-between, Genshen sound poised for greatness. Get this record. It's splendid. by KRAM - Semper Magazine


Alluring cross between eighties synth-pop and early nineties shoegazing guitar-rock...compact and wistful pop songs couched in swirling sometimes cheesy synth textures and resonant guitars... widescreen atmospherics aided by rich detailed production. B Collingwood, Rave Magazine. - Rave Magazine


I was deeply impressed... Brisbane remains the Kapital of Kool. Revolver Magazine. - Revolver Magazine


"Genshen are by far the best band in Brisbane today. Genshen's sound is as original as it is goddamned familiar...Genshen scream appeal...". ElvisPresley.com - ElvisPresley.com


Tight and luscious...breathy, spacious, ethereal and utterly pop. Go buy it, go see 'em, and get yourself lurved!" Richard Kwong - Time Off Magazine. - Timeoff Magazine
