“Their guitar sound is like sweet blue smoke unfurling over a roomful of longhairs on velour pillows” - Chicago Reader


“Vampire Hands have emerged as the band that inspires concert-goers to exchange mutual "holy shit" glances between every song” - City Pages


“Vampire Hands has been making big waves in the Land of 10,000 Lakes while more and more groups are recycling ’60s psychedelic-rock with mixed results. Not only do Vampire Hands get it right but they turn up the heat with cutting guitar lines, dual percussionists, and vocalists that range from a sweet falsetto to a frightening scream.” - KEXP


When I first heard this song, there was no doubt in my mind that the singer was a woman. I was wrong. It’s actually a dude, which I suppose is not totally unfathomable — I was thinking that the voice was similar to that of Celebration’s somewhat androgynous Katrina Ford, who often reminds me of Robert Plant — but I still find it hard to imagine, or at least picture. “No Fun” is floaty and relaxed, but also rather substantial and physically urgent as a result of its busy, ever-shifting percussion. The arrangement strikes a perfect balance of turbulence and tranquility, with the contradictory states leveling out enough to imply a peaceful acceptance of conflict and change. - Fluxblog
