“Mimico have recently opened for post-industrial grinders Pop.1280 as well as whimsical psychedelic one-man-band White Fence, and their VHS-era synth-pop courses bleakly somewhere between the dead-eyed confrontation of the former and the enervated drugginess of the latter.” - Jayson Greene, Wondering Sound
“Chugging Krautrock with sludgy hard rock riffing and chilly goth atmospherics combine for a sound that’s familiar but never derivative” - Now Magazine
