“Saskatoon indie-electro dance-rockers Ash Lamothe and Elsa Gebremichael have a penchant for post-punk guitars which lands them squarely in Bloc Party, Yeah Yeah Yeahs territory.” – NXNE.com, Toronto

“A little bit of 80s new wave with a little bit of New York grit… We Were Lover’s new self-titled EP shines over four songs, capturing the attention of club kids and Brooklyn beat followers every where.” – Amy Dittmeier, www.heavemedia.com, Chicago

“Sure to be Canada’s sweetest export since Maple Syrup, We Were Lovers combines their solid pop sensibilities with an untamed rock and roll edge… WWL create popular music with an original twist..” – CMJ Magazine, New York
