"Minks’ debut album, By the Hedge, includes “Funeral Song” and builds on its sound: a fully atmospheric, unabashedly sentimental strain of pop that, at its best, provides a welcome immersion..." (

"...By the Hedge is steeped in the golden days of college rock, but every moment that sounds like it came from an album buried in a promo bin for a couple of decades is balanced by something from Minks' own time. “Funeral Song”'s fizzy synths and elegy for summer are downright chillwavey, but it’s a great single, regardless of whether it appeared in 1990 or 2010. Regardless of where Minks draw their inspiration, By the Hedge shows they use it expertly. Their songs have good bones and simple yet evocative lyrics like “Juniper”'s refrain “Pull me under/Over and over,” and they know when to swath them in distortion and reverb or leave them relatively bare. And, on the lanky, jolie-laide love song “Out of Tune,” they even make the wrong notes mean as much as the right ones. Minks leave listeners wanting more on By the Hedge, a debut that sounds timeless and surprising." (Read More:
