The Spielberg’s have been noted as The Guardian’s “Ones To Watch” for 2019, The band have the perfect introduction to this Norwegian trio with clattering rhythms and razor-sharp riffs combining for a devastating listen. With Big, heart-on-sleeve guitar-rock with a go-for-broke anthemic intensity…the combination of their singles, plus their debut EP, Distant Star, led to plaudits from rock press and beyond. Check out the earlier track “We Are All Going To Die” will have you either tearing up, punching the sky, or both.” This is for fans of fuzzy, propulsive cathartic jams, are about to have a new favourite band.”

“Pummelling yet melodic guitars batter you round the heart with nary a pause for breath… Full of huge, lung-busting, shouting-into-the-wind vocals and relentless drums, guitars and everything else, cheerily-titled new single ‘We Are All Going To Die’ shows little concern for restraint.” – DIY

“We Are All Going To Die” is encased in a relentless soundscape of drums and guitars, owing its all-encompassing musicianship to shoegaze that is underpinned by a distinctly emo heart.” – The Line of Best Fit

“Guitars drill down at all angles, while the pummelling percussion sounds like a cement mixer trying to chew up a steel beam.” – CLASH
