about

“This is an album packed with up-tempo infectious indie from a group with a gift for creating memorable hooks”. Entertainment.ie

"Fans of unfettered bed-sit pop will fall into a swoon over the debut album from eight-piece The Crayon Set. With tips of the hat to Camera Obscura, The Secret History and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, the Dubliners have created a hushed, gorgeous suite of melancholia. If you are partial to this sort of thing, The Crayon Set may well be one of your favourite Irish albums of the year". Metro Herald

"The Crayon Set are as catchy as a virus. If you're looking for the kind of purity in indie-pop that you thought had gone missing far too many years ago, then their debut album will see you so right you'll never be wrong again”. Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times

“Perfect Pop”. Hot Press

“4/5. An indie orchestra favourably compared to the likes of Arcade Fire and Belle & Sebastian.” Mark Kavanagh, The Daily Star


“Recalls the sounds of bands such as Belle & Sebastian and Camera Obscura, from the girl-boy vocal interplay to the proliferation of warm, organic instrumentation that bumbles wistfully from song to song. They make an effort to maintain impetus and vary their style throughout. A charming debut”. Lauren Murphy, The Sunday Times

"I really love this band's sound. The multi-layered harmonies and use of diverse instruments make The Crayon Set one of the most exciting bands around."
(2 U I Bestow)

"The Crayon Set create music that is so infectious you will be dancing before you realise you’ve gotten out of your chair."
