Big Cheese: "Narration are building awesome live reputation with an epic, soaring sound that recalls the expansive musings of Brand New's last album and grandiose gestures of Smashing Pumpkins. They imbue a mature, considered sound with urgency and strength. The world needs more bands like them"


"I don't think there's any doubt that we're going to be hearing a lot more about Narration... on their way to big things we reckon.“ Steve Harris, XFM

'Soaring, epic, grandiose alt-rock... The world needs more bands like Narration“ Big Cheese

'Passionate and poetic, it's pretty clear why these guys are making waves. Watch out in 2008, you will hear this“ Gigwise

Narration ended 2007 by winning XFM's unsigned competition, packing out London's Fly Bar and travelling to America, where they performed on air for WBRU. Silversun Pickups, Against Me! and Avenged Sevenfold were also part of the radio station's birthday celebrations.

2008 has begun as brightly as 2007 finished. Narration played to the biggest, most excitable crowd of the night at John Kennedy's XFM gig and The Fly Magazine has predicted a busy year for the young Twickenham band. Elsewhere, the national press have compared Narration to Radiohead, Brand New & Smashing Pumpkins, and declared them more melodically exciting than Coldplay.
