Over the last year Soft Arrows have played shows with Deerhoof, Scott & Charlenes wedding, Ty Segall, Mac Demarco , Dum Dum Girls and self released their debut album “All Through The Sinew”, .

"Full of winter melancholy that starts in quite a dreamy state before bursts of piercing guitars fill the ending of the track."

"If this is a sign of things to come then we could be looking at a modern punk band with their own sound, without the borrowed, faux attitude, and with some decent agitated tunes instead."
"Figure 8" - The Sound Of Confusion
"Essentially this is a cliche-free update of punk rock if it hadn't been hijacked by Americans with skateboards and trousers that they like to wear around their lower thighs."
"Figure 8" - SoundsXP
"Lo-Fi beauty… guitar work that’s echoing Grizzly Bear"

"a glorious interchange of HEALTH’s screeching guitar lines & Women’s intelligent refrains - holding it all together is a Black Lips-esque rabid taste for flesh."
"Spirit Animal Bones" - Music Fan's Mic
