"...Wing Dam is ready to burst. The self-described 'very crunchy' coed trio ace super-fuzzed out, candy-sweet noise-pop, and its latest pogo-inciting riffer, fittingly titled Shifter Bliss, is just that: arena-ready, sun-splashed quietLOUDquiet pedal-hopping anthemic crushers with dashes of Pixies and Sugar 90s alternapop catchiness."

"It’s breathtaking in its immediate sing-along impact and pop acumen....gains power and volume like someone stepped on a stompbox marked “Awesome.”
(Baltimore City Paper)

"Sunny pop harmonies over fuzzy guitar riffs and driving drums"

"...An ideal blend of melodic fuzz with the all the light-hearted features of pop- but none of the sonic superficiality"
(Brightest Young Things)

"The fusion of styles on Shifter Bliss makes it a wonder. When the hooks hit your ear, it is perfectly acceptable to take it as a power pop record. However, the grinding nature of the riffs and how they multiply, from a three piece band no less, make it sound much more complex. Shifter Bliss is if grunge went pop, but never sacrificed their roots for mass appeal."

"Thick, crunchy alternapop"
(Brooklyn Vegan)

"There are serious pop hooks going on underneath all the thick yet detailed sludge of guitars...There’s room to take a breath. And there is an articulation to the songwriting one can totally sink their teeth in to."
(Mat Leffler-Schulman, Mobtown Studios)

"Full on robust tear the walls down rock. The guitars are thick and powerful, pairing with equally intense rhythms."
(Pasta Primavera)

"Even while ripping away, the band is cognizant of when to pull back, allowing the delicate vocals of Austin Tally and Sara Autrey to come through peacefully. This is the Wing Dam we’ve been waiting for."
(Decoder Magazine)

"Possesses more post-grunge riffs than one can really know what to do with. Luckily, these three fine young specimens have found a way to harness all them licks."
(Impose Magazine)
