"purpose and drive wrought into every heartwrenching note"
- ELAINE O’CONNOR, THE SCOTSMAN
"... they certainly proved different from the majority of acts on the Scottish scene, with a frontman in Mark Swan who hollered and raged like Nick Cave. He was aided by some superbly insistent, loping basslines a delightful tendency by the band to deliver waves of noise with poise. Hugely impressive."
- JONATHAN GEDDES, THE HERALD
"Mark Swan makes his presence known by rambling away manically into a vintage mic, Nick Cave style, as he flails around the stage. He pulls out various toys throughout the set which add a finishing touch to the creepy, murky projections cast on stage, while a bass-heavy rhythm section bring the pain. Despite an obvious fascination for Lynch, their songs and live show are individually compelling."
- ROSS WATSON, THE SKINNY
"Natalie Pryce's album is a raw, punky-blues affair. It's gloriously dark listening."
- JIM GELLATLY, THE SCOTTISH SUN
"Both music and film come to you in monochrome, suffused in a dark fifties’ demi-monde exuding a barely concealed sexuality and a love that dare not speak its name."
- SIMON GODLEY, GOD IS IN THE TV
"Natalie Pryce are here to provide musical entertainment. That isn't to say that they are here to make you feel better. In fact, this Glasgow band may help expose that last raw nerve. But they will make you feel, and it will be an interesting musical ride."
- SCOTT GALLOWAY, WHEN YOU MOTOR AWAY...
"Natalie Pryce sound just like the kind of Fringe-pricks that hang outside Bedlam Theatre late at night smoking roll-ups and discussing Arthur Miller."
- DAUPHIN MAGAZINE
"this is freaking awesome. fantastic work!"
- KEITH MCIVOR, OPTIMO MUSIC
"It's a much overused sentiment in music journalism but Natalie Pryce really are distinctive in their sound. Dapper and often shamelessly catchy, they counter their kinder tendencies with an air of cynicism and melancholy that borders, every so often, on the malevolent."
- CHRIS CUSACK, BLOC
"Swan’s delivery is so powerful that even if you cannot follow his tales about life, death, love and sorrow you still get dragged in by the passion of his delivery"
- IAIN DAWSON, RAVECHILD
"Weird but in all the best ways. I felt like I’d just walked into a seedy 1940s blues bar, where the next artist would be a burlesque dancer, or there would be an air raid. Surreal doesn’t cover it."
- HEATHER DAVINA, MUSIC AND MEANDERING
"The realism and tension that accompanies Natalie Pryce's sound is entirely refreshing; nothing sounds perfect and that's exactly how it should be. Some songs are spitting out anger while others are laced with the heartache of adulthood. They are not background music and they are not angst, they are in-your-face and they're insanely good."
- SARAH-LOUISE KELLY, WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS
"The Mark Swan led band of weirdos launch their new album, with Swan likely rambling away into a vintage mic, helped along by murky projections and a bass-heavy rhythm section. Amen."
- SKINNY MAGAZINE
"Some nice indie pop that comes with a fairly freaky/demented visual component."
- JOHN BOOK, THIS IS BOOK MUSIC
