"Present Company embraces their new wave heritage and play with some of the most iconic elements of that era — hooky bass lines, primitive yet effective synth programming, and the wild vocal fluctuations of David Byrne." - Ear Coffee
"A wily, raucous outpouring of angst filtered through a buoyant indie rock lens, Present Company’s new single 'It’s Not Looking Good' is a refreshing boost of Midwestern adrenaline." - Atwood Magazine
