  1. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Very much an album out of time, music made out of love, rather than in pursuit of a trend

  2. 8.0 |   DIY

    It’s a duality that stops ‘Permo’ from becoming drawn out or one-dimensional, and the pair of voices feel like they’re working together towards a common goal rather than battling it out

  3. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    There's a playfulness between songwriters Sean Armstrong and Jack Mellin that keep things fresh and exciting even when the band are at their most reminiscent of 90s jangly indie-rock

  4. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Permo's strength is the variety of voices provided by rotating singers Rachel Taylor, Sean Armstrong and Jack Mellin. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   All Music

    A fine work by a band finding its feet; a rousing rumble through the wilds of Scottish pop

  7. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Charmingly wobbly. Print edition only

  8. 5.0 |   Loud And Quiet
