Press for 'Burn the Boats' LP + 'Wake' 7":

"Swoonworthy Brooklyn epic-makers." - Spin

"‎These young bucks might be New York's best hope for alt-rock space spirituals." - Village Voice

"Big music -- super sized, widescreen, panoramic. Guitars are layered on top of one another, creating a rumble that's both dreamy and imposing." - Washington Post

"Art punks who make shoegaze sound like it's about to be delivered from outer space in the future rather than deriving from the home counties of England a quarter of a century ago." - Drowned in Sound

"Drawing inspiration from ’90s dream-pop and shoegazer but for detours into terrain more aggressive, and vocals more upfront and neatly intervallic." -Stereogum

"[Farewell Republic] have found that sweet spot between relentless, primeval punk-fuzz and melodic, hope-filled dream-pop and it appears they’re unafraid to revel in it."
- My Old Kentucky Blog

‎"Soaring and crushing variations of psychedelia and space rock, with occasional sprinkles of shoegaze." -Death+Taxes Mag

"Simply put, Burn the Boats establishes Farewell Republic as a one of the premier young bands to come out of Brooklyn in recent years."
- Brightest Young Things

"‎A haunting and daringly original masterpiece." (4.5/5)
- Sputnik Music

"Incredible.." - The Record Stack

"Dynamic monster... blends twisted shoegaze noise with earth shaking psych." - Sounds Better With Reverb

‎"This record is an excellent example of pushing the rock idiom forward, pulling a balancing act between noisy post-punk experimentation, alt-rock melodicism, and movie soundtrack bombast." - In Your Speakers

"It's not hard to see why these kids can create such fervent excitement." - Sonic Masala

"Loud as fuck." - QRO Magazine

"A wonderful soundscape that seems to capture the realm of the waking dream... the perfect soundtrack to a walk through Manhattan, or a flight above the clouds." -The Indie Artist Podcast

"Young band creating some serious noise." - Oh So Fresh!

"‎Unadulterated joy.." - 365 Albums a Year
