"UK quote samples of Sad Day For Puppets"

”I love it. I’m so pissed off. Sweden, Can’t you TRY TO MAKE IT LOOK HARD? You’re showing the rest of us up…”

Album: Pale Silver & Shiny Gold Lauren Laverne BBC 6 Music

“The plaid days of early ’90s alt.rock are having a quiet resurgence, and the Stockholm quintet are one of its more beguiling advocates.” … “If the prospect of a Swedish Joy Zipper appeals to you, you should investigate forthwith.”
8/10 NME, Album: Unknown Colors

I blame last week’s Breeders-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties for taking me back to the fuzzy, dreamy sounds of early ‘90s indie – and nobody steals them better in 2009 than the Sonic Cathedral label’s new bunch of Swedish shoegazers.
The Guardian, Album: Unknown Colors

“Angels that are dipped in honey, the sort of honey that unlocks locks”
Single: Sorrow, Sorrow - Single of the week and Top 50 Singles of 2011 Drowned in Sound

“While Guitar Hero may be every boy's fantasy, Sad Day For Puppets are at their best crafting hazy, sun drenched pop songs fuelled by melody, enthusiasm and no doubt very extensive record collections bursting at the seams with imports of the best 4AD, Sub Pop and Creation Records had to offer in the early 1990s.”
7/10, Gig review Nottingham, Drowned In Sound

“I don't know whether it simply didn't occur me before or whether the band really are playing slightly differently this time around, but I couldn't help but be struck by the way that not only the textures and melodies, but the rhythm section in particular have gone really Smashing Pumpkins (which can only be a good thing).”
5/5 Gig review Manchester High Voltage

“OK kids, listen up. The rules for writing the perfect indiepop single are as follows:”
Music Dash, Single: Sorrow, Sorrow

“it is the dynamic sonic range and instant satisfaction of this album's louder numbers that render it one of 2010's foremost indie underground hits.”
Music Week, Album: Pale Silver & Shiny Gold

“Whistful opener ‘Sorrow, Sorrow’, nuzzles you into a total false sense of security before the likes of ‘Such A waste’ and the irrepressible ‘Shadows’ shock your system like an adrenaline shot to the cerebellum. A mood miscellany, but we’d happily hop back for another mouthful of these allsorts”
7/10 NME, Album: Pale Silver & Shiny Gold

“Instantly familiar on the surface, but just underneath there lurk enticing mysteries”
4/5 Uncut, Album: Pale Silver & Shiny Gold

“It also marks a transition for the band, the lullaby-like melodies remain intact but are being increasingly coated with layers of guitar which are more than worthy of comparisons to the likes of My Bloody Valentine or Dinosaur Jr. SDFP are gradually evolving, honing their sound, and the fact that they're still relatively unknown is criminal. Bring on the next album. “
