(HOTPRESS MAGAZINE)

“One of the best sets of the weekend ( Electric Picnic ) was Maud in Cahoots…..It’s been fascinating to watch that band grow, develop and morph into something truly captivating with bags of star quality.” Una Mullally, Irish Times.

It is frankly baffling that Maud in Cahoots have not yet been signed. Their commercial but resolutely quality driven music is addictive from the first listen, so you can dispense with those first few listens, finger hovering over the stop button. I first discovered Maud in Cahoots in Body and Soul at this year's Electric Picnic, and they were a revelation. They are current, yet orchestral, and show that being ferried to and from cello lessons can pay off without one having to sacrifice one's street cred. They're supporting boy wonders The Strypes tonight, but, surely, someone soon has to have a lightbulb moment, sign these pop minstrels and peddle their slick sound over the water and around the world soon...Surely... / Cora Burke Le Cool Dublin

“If Beyoncé patented the "visual album," then leave it to Irish alt-pop ensemble Maud in Cahoots to pioneer the "live concept album". Inspired by the phenomenon described by neurologist Oliver Sacks in his book Musicophilia, The Well Rested Terrorist casts an eye over the varying effects that music has on the human psyche. Featuring nine new songs composed by Maud in Cahoots, this piece stars the captivating Maud in Cahoots and Rory Fleck-Byrne as two subjects that can only communicate via the medium of music and explores just what music can do a person. Noteworthy for being the first Fringe show staged in The Abbey, the show places the band in a live context that isn't merely a gig in a pub. The result is a wholly unique meditation on infamy, fear and coming to terms with being yourself.”     Le Cool Dublin

“The Well Rested Terrorist reminds you why albums are things to savour and digest” Una Mullally, Irish Times

****“Maud Ní Riordáin is a striking, controlled presence with a pristine voice...Maud in Cahoots present a ‘live concept album’ ..always absorbing; a painstaking work, given startling execution.” Peter Crawley, Irish Times.

"Irish pop music has a decidedly chequered history of sibling synchronicity but, with our pop landscape looking especially barren of late, Dublin sisters Maud and Zoe Reardon are a radiant beacon of hope. Combining luscious chamber-pop arrangements with melancholy melodies worthy of the most lovelorn of Scandinavian chanteuses, Maud in Cahoots occupy a point on the musical spectrum quite apart from the production-line pap pedaled by Louis Walsh. Theyre one of Dublins best kept musical secrets, but that might have something to do with never having played a headline gig here until now. With support from the eminently talented Leanne Harte, this is shaping up to be the kind of family affair Mary J would want to sing about." Le Cool Dublin Joey Kavanagh

"If you like your women classically trained and with a voice as smooth as silk then you'll fall in love with Maud Reardon."   London Music Blog
