BROUGHT TO YOU FROM THE MORGAN HOTEL in TEMPLE BAR, DUBLIN
"Press Empire are a quintet who flit between influences. On "Golden Lies" they combine the soaring harmonies we associate with the Beach Boys with the common sense of ELO to come with a catchy, radio-friendly track. "I Can Still Remember" has a more sombre feel, rattling drums and tight harmonies, topped up with a lush production by Liam Mulvaney. "Who You Are" is a more balladic offering, with plaintive vocals, a Beatlish arrangement and a lazy feel to perfectly soundtrack a balmy summer's day. This is classy stuff in the quality pop tradition."
-Jackie Hayden, Hotpress, 25/08/10
