"You'll Go Wild For LGS"

Let’s Go Safari thread their jaunty sound with everyday experiences from life in Poole and on the south coast. - Daily Echo (Bournemouth)

"Alphabet Bands - Let's Go Safari"

It’s pretty much the aural equivalent of the most rambunctious house party of your teenage years. People are doing that dance that is really just jumping up and down with your elbows out, chest bumping one another, drinking all the booze, and caring not one iota for any collateral damage they may cause.
- Alphabet Bands

"Let's Go Safari - Live In London"

Frontman Ryan bounds about like an ADHD kid who’s had a cola bottle too many. He’s friendly and there’s no assuming stage presence, no pretense, no cold hard stares or trying-too-hard outfits. His boxers are hanging out. And the rest of the band tend to merge into the background at the start. They’re a unit, a musical forcefield with Ryan at the helm guiding them. - Never Enough Notes

"Don't Forget To Bring Your Own Beer"

The band have a unique edge, merging guitar-driven indie-pop with crisp harmonies and quirky synthesizers; Let’s Go Safari write simple, catchy songs in a frighteningly complex way. - Never Enough Press

"A Rare Style Collision That Works Well"

This second single release by the Dorset Coast dwelling quartet (Ryan Wood – Vocals. Clive Robert Coats – Guitar/programming/vocals. Oli Crisp – Bass and James Mosley – Drums) Let's Go Safari is a musical miss mash of swirling 60's Hammond Organ, Eastern European folk vibes, electronic party starting indie-pop and 90's Ska sensibilities.
