"The National/The Jane Bradfords gig Review"

"(They) write songs that burn with a furnace-like intensity; sorrow and joy tangled up in their crisp synthesizer motifs and knotted guitars. Frontman Deci Gallen has one of those voices, sepulchral, echoing mournfully, a ghost amongst the gravestones."

Frances Jones, DiS - Drowned in Sound

"Huw Stephens Radio 1"

"Sounding absolutely spectacular... They make ace indie music, all grotty and life affirming" - BBC Radio 1

"Q Magazine Feature"

"The Jane Bradfords recall the bruised melancholy of The National and a pre-superstardom Snow Patrol" - Q Magazine

"Album Review by BBC Electric Mainline"

"If you were able to fuse Ceremony-era New Order with Mars Audiac Quintet-era Stereolab, you might come close to the sound of The Jane Bradfords. With an effusive pop sensibility plugged straight into the heart of post punk minimalism, each song rises and falls in glorious waves of joy and sorrow." - BBC

The Jane Bradfords are a five piece. Sometimes they can be as large as a seven piece. Sometimes its just one guy in a studio cursing at old keyboards that used to work perfectly well. On the surface they’re Indie, but elements of Pop, Electro and even post punk are all in the mix. There’s the nonchalant swagger of The National, the driving, tight Peter Hook style bass and at times the euphoric hosannas of Arcade Fire, but they have a defiantly unique sound. They have supported and/or toured with The National, Maximo Park, LCD Soundsystem, Deerhunter, Cold War Kids, and Peter Bjorn and John among others, emphasizing their cross-genre appeal. Radio 1’s ‘introducing’ awarded the band with ‘album of the week’ for their 2008 self-titled debut LP. Their second album is due in 2010.
