“One of Newcastle’s finest bands… a chrome wall of pure rock n roll essence”
“Unique and uncompromising approach to harmony”
Tom Robinson, BBC Radio
“A white-hot salvo… exceptional”
Rob Nichols, Evening Gazette
“An already dark and brooding sound, the band create something incredibly believable…Retriever stand out simply because they’re pure, angry and very uncompromising”
Crack In The Road
“This is more like it!…And yes it is worth the hype”
“Eerie lead guitar, violence and digital malfunction. Prepare to be shit scared”
“An unholy mix of 60’s garage, 70’s krautrock and 80’s post punk. ‘Murder’ is a dark, driving slice of rhythmic howling menace. The band layer cutting (femme fatale) vocals, spikey guitar and pounding bass over primitive drum machine beats to create a devastating effect”
Robi Insina, Relish Records
