“...The ageless Bats continue to defy the odds with their 2017 album, The Deep Set.

"...Despite the warm nostalgia one is sure to get from listening to The Deep Set, there's also a fulfilling sense that the music is made by people who care about each other, care about making their music as pure and rich as possible, and have never set foot in a less than Bats-like direction. It's beyond impressive and each album they make should be hailed as a gift to anyone who loves the classic Flying Nun sound. Or anyone who loves guitar jangle or Robert Scott's voice. Or those who treasure Kaye Woodward's cascading lead guitar runs and her lovely vocal harmonies. Or lovers of rock-solid rhythm sections, because bassist Paul Kean and drummer Malcolm Grant are immovable. The Bats are one of New Zealand's great treasures bestowed upon the world at large, and anytime they make a record, especially one as good as The Deep Set, it's an event worth celebrating…” (
