"Classically-styled pop played flawlessly.
The sound is often acoustic, but always
tight and focused. Even the mellower
moments here are light-years away from
mawkishness. Paul Handyside writes some
beautiful songs, and Bronze brings them to
life in the brightest way possible."

"A great sound, and some wonderful songs
with the emotive vocals of Paul Handyside
(reminiscent in parts of Jeff Buckley) some
of the tracks have an almost gospel feeling
(Good has Gone) and is just as uplifting. An
interesting and original British trio, this is a
great album, and one that should make
their name."
James Turner Classic Rock Society

"Zwischen Folkrock, Power Pop und
Britpop agiert dieses Trio aus dem
Nordosten Englands. Erstaunlich, dass
selbst im Mutterland der Popmusik solche
großen Talente unbemerkt bleiben."

"Handyside certainly has the knack for
writing beautiful ballads, and ‘Lonesome
Touch’ and ‘Grey October’ (my favourite
track on the album) demonstrates how his
song-writing has matured since his days
with 80s band Hurrah, when he proclaimed
‘Tell God I’m Here’."
