"Forget the musically watered down and the visually sharpened up: The Meltaways are the real deal. It's often harsh, but within this EP lies a power and belief that is an easy match for Huggy Bear, for Bikini Kill and Red Aunts. Dear Kathleen...despite so many who seem to have misunderstood, your musical manifesto lives on."
-Staff, REAL GONE ROCKS
"...the tracks below include some of their best yet. The A-side is filled with bold, declarative political statements: echoes of 'Admit you’re living each day in denial' and 'I’ve had enough' ring throughout, bolstered by the band’s breakneck speed and rousing vocals. The back half takes on a more personal bent, and my favorite is closer HOME, an anxious and knotty rager about mental health and finding someone who can stick it out with you through the worst."
-James Rettig, STEREOGUM
"With FLIGHT, the trio deliver a no-nonsense, lightening-bolt of a song. Soaring guitar leads shine in the lo-fi production, and a driving drum beat ushers the track forward. The band sticks with a familiar loud-soft-loud structure but delivers the track's verses and hooks with an infectious abandon. The urgency and honesty of the performance brings the listener into the tracks's fight or flight mindset inherent in its fist-pumping grooves."
-Michael Kolb, ADHOC
"Four raw, powerful punk anthems between the classic punk rock of the Slits and the riot grrrl attitude of Bratmobile that deal with mental health and political positioning. The Meltaways are a power trio"
-Florian Zandt, VISIONS
"One thing that's immediately clear about The Meltaways is that they don't have time for your shit. I wouldn't be surprised if they retroactively inspired safety pins in stockings or set the standard for how to scoff at sellouts, in an unblinking show of I-don't-give-a-fuck. Their tracks are wiry whirlpools that'll spike your heart rate even in their wake....The Meltaways have more than a few tricks up their sleeves when it comes to shattering expected tropes, and this 7" proves they’re worth a closer look."
