Here's the NME review

Wearing their post-punk influences firmly on their sleeves, Wakes debut is sticky with the sheen of the Postcard Records era. Guitarist Bjorns uplifting melodies on Miss Tierney, Remember Fun? and title track You Cant Change That Boy bear the unmistakable jangly watermark of Orange Juices James Kirk, while hovering below the surface of the bands ebullient melodies, his twin brother Eriks tales of debauchery and deception in Glasgows West End are reminiscent of the melancholic 70s indie pop intellectuals Josef K and The Go-Betweens. Although not ground-breaking, each track glimmers with all the existential angst of an art student with a nasty hangover.
