“Sludge-sleek pop songs with spiky guitars and ear splitting noise freakouts. Ones to watch.” The Guardian

“Like one of the Deal sisters in a cosmic deathray fight with Be Your Own Pets Jemina.” NME

“Mistresses of implosive electro feistrawk and a wonder to behold. Nikki looks far too delicate to be playing such unfeasibly unholy bass, Melissa regularly punctuates her Meg White-like insouciance with alarming gushes of keyboard abuse, and frontwoman Becky is thoroughly inspirational, providing the missing link between Polly Harvey at her most electrifyingly pop and Kat Bjelland on an especially seethey day.” Playlouder

“Brash, spiteful, tuneful, cheeky and chaotic – a refreshing blast of air.” Everett True Plan B

“Gratifyingly aggressive and winningly pop.” William Ravenscroft, The Times

“Urgent two minute blasts of keyboard laced, tune heavy, stiletto punk rock thrills. We Start Fires make living for the dance floor seem not merely a sensible but an indispensable life choice.” Drowned In Sound
