“I love the energy and momentum radiated by this band.” Tom Robinson – BBC 6 Music & Fresh On The Net
“Reminiscent of a cooler, rockier Depeche Mode, with some spiky guitar work and some big melodies.” Soundscape Review
“A fine balance of electro and rock sounds that complement each other nicely whilst remaining energetic and empowering.” The Flux Review
“… one of Wales’ most promising acts—watch out for these guys.” The Vinyl District
“It’s not often that something entirely fresh and eclectically invigorating bursts onto the Cardiff scene” The MMP
“ The Cardiff based alt-electro quintet is, quite simply, stunning. Formed in 2010 by former members of Broken Sleep, The Days and Don’t Tread on Spiders, FJORDS have come together to create something rather special. Rock tones with driving guitars are sculpted and shaped with escapist vibes and soaring soundscapes.” Plugged In Magazine
“The band namecheck the likes of A Certain Ratio and Franz Ferdinand, and certainly it has that feeling of being angular yet sort of funky. Synth melodies, nag away at your psyche, before inviting themselves in and taking residence there.” Backseat Mafia Review
“The words ‘next big thing’ are frequently thrown around in the music industry though more often than not they are largely inaccurate. However, listening to FJORDS, a five piece electro/indie outfit from Cardiff, it’s hard not to get excited and predict just that.” The AMP
