  2. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Weird Dreams aren’t all that weird at all – simply a bittersweet indie band who happen to be better than all the others

  3. 8.0 |   DIY

    The strategically placed breakdowns, expansively drawn guitar chorus’ and glittering pop craftsmanship sees Doran Edwards & co fall into their own unique place on today’s musical spectrum

  4. 8.0 |   music OMH

    The quartet may not be as clean-cut and marketable as The Drums, but on this evidence they will have much more staying power. It's an accomplished debut album that lays the foundations for a very bright future

  5. 8.0 |   The Fly

    Morbid one minute, cute the next, finally untangling ‘Choreography’ is an engrossing pleasure
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Young jangle-pop genius attempts to revive literate indie-pop. Print edition only

  7. 7.6 |   Pitchfork

    A most impressive debut: one that captures a young rock 'n' roll band buzzing with raw energy and inspiration while already displaying the sort of rapidly sophisticating songcraft you expect to hear on a sophomore release

  8. 7.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    A fucking blinding pop album for at least half of its running time
    Read Review

  9. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    On the surface their pitch bending twee guitar pop sounds are upbeat, bittersweet and harmonious. But scrape beneath the musical aesthetic and you will find some slightly disturbingly Lynchian lyrics

  10. 7.0 |   NME

    An instant, enjoyable and intelligible record

  11. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    By the time Choreography comes to its summer-slacker conclusion, it's difficult not to hit repeat and let the daydreams roll on

  12. 7.0 |   Bowlegs

    Catchy and interesting, on the whole the release can be boiled down to this scenario – The Beach Boys kick Morrissey out of The Smiths, make the others take acid and jam out surf pop in a big lovely party

  13. 5.0 |   AU Magazine

    Yes, we can all bop along to it with our jumper sleeves over our hands and flapping our fringes about, but we can bop along to plenty of better bands from 20 years ago
