“This EP is a combination of sounds to be marvelled at, with each element having its own space to breathe. Infusing lyrics that shout out from the speakers with high quality rhythms, this is pop-rock as it should be.”
Music Review Podcast
“Alvarez Kings sound remarkably fresh with more creative ideas than you can shake your finger at. Vocally, the songs on here vary from anthemic to urgent , but it is musically that the band will perhaps surprise many.”
“Enthroning indie-pop with a crown made out of severed guitar strings, Sheffield based quartet Alvarez Kings are vigorously rubbing rock salt into the indie wound with EP Patience is Strength… a rare knack of creating order through disjointed guitar strokes, formulating the type of energised indie that gets you popping all sorts of sockets along to the equally poppy beats.“
The Music Fix
“Filled from start to finish with epic guitar riffs and a catchy chorus sure to stick in your head. It is all too easy to imagine songs like this slotting neatly between indie favourites such as “Mr Brightside” and “Hey Scensters!” in clubs – and on iPods – up and down the country”
“If you’re not dancing by now, you’ll never dance again. Alvarez Kings have bags of talent and bags of attitude.”
“Press that repeat button! Infectious stuff which could well help to propel [Alvarez Kings] into the indie big leagues.”
There will be news on another new release from a band new to the label before April is over.
