Revere :

"Revere have come a long way... mesmerising vocals and beautiful strings make for a compelling show. New single ‘These Halcyon Days’ has an infectious energy which instantly lifts” - The Fly

"Revere’s songs mix the epic and the melancholy... thoughtful and delicate" - The Guardian

"Revere encapsulate a euphoric melancholia" - Scotsman

"These Halcyon Days is our track of the week!" - This Is A Popscene

"Finely hewed, attractively harmonised chamber-folk-meets-Radiohead" - The Herald, Scotland

“Revere (inexplicably underrated) present aching songs of fragility and hope” - Financial Times

“Revere were the surprise of the evening... an unlikely and extraordinary pairing with Toumani Diabate... Ellis is a natural frontman” - Songlines

"[Revere has] a great live reputation, their cacophonous multi-layered sound along with stunning live visuals setting them apart" - Q Magazine

"Stunning, heartfelt sounds" - The Fly

"A storming, stirring new-band that genuinely takes your breath away" - Sunday Times

"It's big, it's loud … it is a mighty call to abandon care and live now … a commendable taste in non-core instrumentation and dramatic arrangements" - Word

"Epic widescreen melancholia" - Telegraph

"Their music is epic, emotive and exquisite" - Glam

"But the day’s real revelations lurked on the smaller stages, notably the eight-piece orchestral-rockers Revere, who combine the fiery melodrama of Muse with the rousing chamber-pop of Arcade Fire. They could, and should, be huge" - The Times

"An extraordinary widescreen, technicolor epic of a song...a stunning single by a stunning band..." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music

"[Revere]'s enormous sound has inevitably been compared with Arcade Fire, and with good reason – there’s nothing the Canadians can do that these lot can’t do just as well, whether it be a bombastic vocal or a beautiful orchestral backdrop. There’s hints of Baltic folk, nods to John Barry, and with any justice they should be just as much household names as the Radioheads or Muses of this world" - There Goes The Fear

"Revere... so stirring that they could have roused an army of hippies to war! Fantastically extravagant... frontman Stephen Ellis is vocally very similar to Interpol’s Paul Banks but, inconceivably, even stronger"- Polari Magazine

"[Revere], adept at thinking outside the box, incorporate styles as diverse as Klezmer, Balkan and gypsy music. Stephen Ellis’s beautiful, mature vocal might have originated in a Welsh male choir"
- For Folks Sake
