"in covering about a decade per minute, Modern Rivals show a present-day curiosity towards the endless access to the past." - Pitchfork

 

"Modern Rivals have an ear for pop but a restless hankering for something more. That comes across handily on the Brooklyn-via-St. Louis band's new album Cemetery Dares, whose songs are equal parts inviting and itchy." - SPIN

 

"Shortly after, the set’s electric air filtered out into the night, sending shivers throughout the venue. Few Tuesday evenings ever warrant such feelings." 
- Consequence of Sound (Live Review)

 

“'The Dead Leaves' furthers their brand of organic psychedelia with math-rock tendencies that manages to combine the disjointed layers of Alt-J and the swirling synths of Animal Collective. It’s a shame that even with such an established sound, the five-piece is still completely under-the-radar." - Unrecorded

 

"When I hit play on Modern Rivals’ Bandcamp page, I was amazed not so much by the band’s blatant potential, but rather as to why their new EP, Sea Legs, hasn’t yet become the talk of the indie music lovers’ town." - The Wild Honey Pie

 

"Born Ruffians, Nurses, New Animal, and more recently Yeasayer have all attempted to strike the same balance between quirky accessibility and concerted resonance, but I’m not sure any have displayed the same degree of pop competency that Modern Rivals do, especially this early in their development." - Music for USB Ports
