"Philadelphia’s The Late Greats just released their debut EP, Kids You Knew, a tight and concise batch of crafted, garage-rock earworms . . . In a time where most consider rock ‘n’ roll falling apart, the Late Greats pick up the pieces to construct their own interpretation of the genre . . . This is music for those who long for the sound of 1976 filtered through the summer of ’96. And as they prove with their intricate and dense songwriting, being innovative can show itself in more ways than one." - Tyler Asay, Magnet Magazine
"Even on their fastest track, 'Lost Highway,' the verses glisten with relaxation, while the song’s introduction and chorus rage with distorted guitar and upbeat drums. Each song has its success in being thoughtful and catchy, but 'Walk Away' might be the band’s most infectious mix of time periods. The crafty guitar riff opens up the song by creating a dancy feel alongside the drums, and vocalist Luke Bauerlein brings in high-pitched, soothing vocal takes. The song then erupts with a shout and shrieking guitar to lead in the standout chorus, which rages with piercing riffs, massive drums, and layers of hollering." - Jay Breslin, Philly Punk
released October 10, 2015
