"Ever So Android’s mixture of the distorted programming of Pretty Hate Machine-era Nine Inch Nails and the glitchier strands of the current EDM movement forms a tempestuous brand of electro-rock that’s as dangerous as it is alluring."
"ever so android’s Self-Titled is the most exciting EP I’ve heard all year."
"A compact but alarmingly well-put-together self-titled debut."
"It's very hard to find something out there quite as striking or instantly individual as Seattle electro-rock duo Ever So Android"
"Pressing guitar rhythms help to push the songs along while hypnotic vocals dance within each track and entrance anyone lucky enough to get within earshot....All in all, the band is hauntingly entertaining to watch live but if readers can’t catch the duo in person then Ever So Android’s new album will have to do."
Simpson has got some voodoo magic in her voice. Her vocals are an opulent blend of soul, blues, and industrial; an unexpected combination that produces a hypnotic result. Add to that her spellbinding stage presence and it is obvious that ESA has massive potential to push the envelope on a much bigger stage.
"Lead singer Hope Simpson and guitarist Drew Murray build on eruptive guitar and markedly poppy bass lines that might have music purists changing their minds. Simpson has the emotional imprint of Karen O's lucid misgivings throughout her vocals, with Murray creating a euphonious foundation from which Simpson soars."
"Seattle duo Ever So Android pits the assailant vocals of Hope Simpson against the guitars, electronics and programmed drums of Drew Murray."
"(they) sound as if Karen O went on a date with the Nine Inch Nails and picked up some Postrock on the way (just to be safe). "
"Vocalist Hope Simpson and guitarist Drew Murray certainly pack a hefty punch with their glitch electro-grunge."
"It is a pretty amazing experience. Their sincerity and showmanship comes through immediately, and it’s impossible not to dance. They hold nothing back. I left that show with a new belief in this new music they created. What they do would be nearly impossible to imitate, which may be a part of their current success. Drew Murray has been in many bands, this is Hope Simpson’s first. That dynamic plays out as well. His ego comes through the music, and her energy as a front person is pure charisma."
"The new single cements the band’s burgeoning reputation for effortlessly meshing soul and the blues with electro rock, thanks to Hope Simpson’s soulful and expressive vocals, driving rhythm, Drew Murray’s buzzing power chords and swirling, industrial electronics."
"True to form, the song features their signature electro-rock sound that combines deep bass synths with a driving rock beat and soaring vocals. Consisting of guitarist Drew Murray and power vocalist Hope Simpson, this two piece rock outfit has a sound that is both powerful and creative."
"With all this Phantogram talk we’ve been sniffing around for another wicked male/female-electro/rock duo, and luckily this Seattle-based group delivered."
"Ever So Android is heavy, raw and unlike anything you’re likely to have heard before."
"Leash, a down and dirty, grimy indie electro track that will appeal to fans of St Vincent, needs to be played loud."
"The duo's electronic rock might put music purists on the fence."
"In a nutshell, this track is a wonderful break from the various kinds of music emerging from all sides of the world. Make sure to watch out for their future offerings because if this track is any indication, it will be an awesome ride."
