"Miminalist bubblegum/pre-Chysalis Blondie/Japanese cartoon pop/zero-grit sandpaper punk perfection! This White Wires side project (though this joy bop music is more of a mutiny than a side project by comparison to WWs garage purity), PKP is more thrilling than PCP!"
"Hanlons voice: sweet yet detached like the fading flavor of a watermelon Jolly Rancher long crunched and swallowed" -Pitchfork.com
"Sounds like if chiptune foremother Manami Matsumae composed California surf-punk for a Nintendo soundtrack inspired by Shonen Knife playing a sock hop."
