"This is a NYC rock n roll record - references abound to Dylan, VU and Lou Reed ... Standards has pretty much everything you could want from a Cole record" UNCUT 8/10

Having explored a 70's rock sound in their previous two LP's, Pop Tune is a return to the bands signature combinations of pin sharp punk-pop, 60's girl group inspired harmonies, upbeat melodies and irreverence. This is a celebration and paean to pop, catchy hooks, key changes, simple, fast, short and altogether jubilant songs.
The Fly "Always charming, always exhilarating ... simply perfect pop"
