‘Frankly, the world needs more of this. Its been too long since shouty girl punk-rock with a pop edge and attitude has crashed face-first into weird atonal psychedelia before exploding back into the chorus and gained the attention of the wider world. Described as the north wests best kept secret.’ - Exposed Magazine
“SCARLET put one thing above all else: writing great songs. Every single one of their songs is catchy, rhythmic and brilliant. Their intense desire to constantly improve and build
on their already solid foundations is something that every band should aspire to do.” - Kyker
“Marrying the modern pop savvy of Paramore to the ethereal otherness of Belly, Scarlet take aim at the pop dartboard and land joyously close to the bullseye” - The Skinny - http://www.theskinny.co.uk/music/reviews/albums/scarlet-effigy

the top of their game.’ - Kycker
