"When these guys perform live, they create a wall of sound so massive that it's hard to believe they're only a two-piece." -- Guitar World 

"Brimming with lush vocals and addictively warped instrumentals, the track packs it on heavy in the best way possible." -- Bandsintown 

"Whether it’s the breakneck riffage of Dio-era Black Sabbath in Wouters’ fuzzed-out shredding, the Layne Staley-qualities to Wouters’ Voice, or the precise, monstrous drumming that sounds like Ozzy-era Sabbath in E.P.’s drumming, the classic rock aficionado can find plenty to love in this band." -- Atwood Magazine 

"Cigarette” has a good mix of Jesus & Mary Chain, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and A Place To Bury Strangers all rolled into one pulsing dark track with some stand out guitar riffs." -- The Fire Note 

"Deaf Poets, the Brooklyn band by way of Miami, brings an incredible mix of heavy old school rock (à la Black Sabbath) with a contemporary edge (à la Nirvana) that you can’t help but want to jam along with. It’s loud, it’s sweaty, and with two guys they somehow create a wall of sound that completely engulfs the listener." -- Jukely 

"...the EP’s latest single “Cigarette,” features a moody and expansive alternating quiet, loud, quiet  song structure centered around effortless time signature changes, tribal-influenced drumming and some impressive and forceful guitar pyrotechnics, revealing an ambitious band experimenting with both their sound and songwriting." -- The Joy of Violent Movement 

"The guitar chords are wide and explosive — reaching beyond the confines of sonic space. The drums pierce through the mix with dynamic bliss." -- Sound Renaissance  

"Brooklyn by Miami duo Sean Wouters and Nico E.P. provide a three part mammoth jam that has the attitude & electric cadences that you crave relentlessly." -- Impose Magazine 

"This Brooklyn-via-Miami Beach duo rocks it out of the park just as you’d expect from a dead-pan, graphic novel of your life that you’d never had – but wanted." -- Come Here Floyd 

"The new EP is a blend of alt-rock that features distorted guitars and thunderous drums to create a sound that is only their own." -- ThatMag
