"Ever So Android’s mixture of the distorted programming of Pretty Hate Machine-era Nine Inch Nails and the glitchier strands of the current EDM movement forms a tempestuous brand of electro-rock that’s as dangerous as it is alluring."

"ever so android’s Self-Titled is the most exciting EP I’ve heard all year."
"A compact but alarmingly well-put-together self-titled debut."
Kings of A and R
"Pressing guitar rhythms help to push the songs along while hypnotic vocals dance within each track and entrance anyone lucky enough to get within earshot....All in all, the band is hauntingly entertaining to watch live but if readers can’t catch the duo in person then Ever So Android’s new album will have to do."
"Lead singer Hope Simpson and guitarist Drew Murray build on eruptive guitar and markedly poppy bass lines that might have music purists changing their minds. Simpson has the emotional imprint of Karen O's lucid misgivings throughout her vocals, with Murray creating a euphonious foundation from which Simpson soars."
"Seattle duo Ever So Android pits the assailant vocals of Hope Simpson against the guitars, electronics and programmed drums of Drew Murray."
"(they) sound as if Karen O went on a date with the Nine Inch Nails and picked up some Postrock on the way (just to be safe). "
I lost my panties in the moshpit
"Vocalist Hope Simpson and guitarist Drew Murray certainly pack a hefty punch with their glitch electro-grunge."
