Come on everyone, let's just have a good time and sit in a garage all day and try and play our instruments but probably give up and end up getting high and talking about our fleeting feelings. Sound like Best Coast, much? It also sounds like the Aquadolls, who make indie pop you can surf and sigh to, with lots of sunny California riffs that help the palm trees sway. 'Stoked On You' is another simple pop record that succeeds on our favourite things: melodies and harmonies. For fans of Alvvays and Best Coast and anything between.

7/10 AndrewB Customer review, 4th December 2014
It's difficult trying to review this album without using the terms sun-drenched or Californian. It may not instantly appeal to those of us stuck in Britain in a cold damp December, along with the title, as Stoked is basically American for "Over The Moon" but a few listens will soon have you yearning for those summer days, or more than likely a cold damp British August. The album has been around in digital form for a while, and is finally receiving a long overdue physical launch in Vinyl and CD format which should hopefully lead to it receiving more attention. There are plenty of jangly guitars and ooh's and aah's and with lyrics dealing with mainly teenage stuff it is designed to appeal predominantly to a younger audience, but it can by no means instantly dismissed as brain candyfloss for airheads, and I detect a subtle hint that there may be more to come from the bands founder and leader Melissa Brooks.
