"Wildly exotic, wickedly moussed with trenchant sonic semiotics, as well as thrumming stochastic resonance, “Something Broke Inside” enters the elevated realm of savage, cutting edge proto-punk."
"A Jovian thumping rhythm underscores the threnodic chilling textures emerging from the hurdy-gurdy as if presaging dread from the bowels of hell."
"Simultaneously visceral, tempestuous, and haunting, “Something Broke Inside” churns and surges with intoxicating dollops of art-pop, doom, Gothic, and post-punk dynamism, resulting in an emotionally pulverizing and subliminally petrifying composition.”
- Randy Radic, MUZIQUE MAGAZINE
"Album is immense. Exceptional..."
- John Hywel Morris, PRS for Music Senior Membership Development Manager, Wales
"...it’s full of defiance, and there’s even a beguiling quality to it. Powerful, heady stuff. Be drawn into their world and keep an eye out for more from this band."
- Colin Bond, GOD IS IN THE TV
"Watch out for: tAngerinecAt... this is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time, and holds a message too... difficult to believe there were only two musicians on stage. They manage a real art; creating sound which people enjoy..."
– Emily Oldfield, LOUDER THAN WAR
"...the UK/Ukrainian dark electro duo are one of the most incredible live acts we have seen over the years. Not many shows you come away from feeling like you’ve had an out of body experience, but tAngerinecAt transcend all reservations and speak directly to your heart."
“tAngerinecAt brought not just synth to the table, but a whole range of physical, classical instruments into the mix – most noticeably their use of the hurdy-gurdy, to make their music the deep notes of severe doom and dread that gave it the feeling of a rave in a mausoleum...”- Ben Knight, LEFTLION
"Experimental noise and DIY art-pop pairing tAngerinecAt have always been a challenging yet arresting act, who have developed a cult following over the past seven years... warped and twisted like the mutated bodies painter Francis Bacon used to depict human suffering, the sense of immediate fear is palpable throughout the song, but with a rich and earthy feel that is so grounded, you can feel the soil underneath your fingernails after listening... It's a really excellent song that deserves to be heard by many"
- Jimi Arundell, INDIE IS NOT A GENRE
"tAngerinecAt marks 2021 with music at once marvellously extraordinary and memorable."
"Wow, just wow! This is completely “out there” in a way that I have never heard before. It is a an alluring, resplendent cacophony of post-punk style electronic music. This is a truly awesome track! If they haven’t been commissioned for a film soundtrack yet, then someone needs to do it now!
"Tangerinecat exploded into my world and I'm a happier man for it! Awesome energy and multidisciplinary. Myself and the team at New Art Exchange really appreciated your work."- Jason Pollitt, NEW ART EXCHANGE
"...it’s an intriguing and beguiling art-pop song too, showing off the best of the genre through committed experimentalism."
- Sarah Lay, POPOPTICA
"Rarely do bands come along who not only push the envelope, ignore genre constraints but go the extra length to create their own. tAngerinecAt is such a band... Their Bandcamp would indicate that indeed they are developing a cult following.”
William Zimmerman, THE NOISE BENEATH THE SNOW

"tAngerinecAt have been playing gigs at the Adelphi long before they were tAngerinecAt! Even back in the days of their previous incarnation of Dark Patrick, they were always Adelphi favourites.
During our 35 years of running a fully independent underground music venue, we've come to terms with the fact that our most important mission is 'to move music forward as an art form' and tAngerinecAt fill that description whole heartedly.
They are not background music that you hear on the radio whilst you move things along a conveyor belt, do the washing up or try and cop off to.
They are music that you listen to and for it subsequently "feel" to and get transported by.
With the added bonus of always generating a dance floor and a room full of happy sweaty people.
Plus, how often do you get to rave to a Hurdy Gurdy?!
True one of a kinds, a delight to work with and always a top choice for any billing." - Mat Oliphant. Manager at The New Adelphi Club (2019 Outstanding Achievement and Contribution to Grassroots Music Venues Award)
“It is an experience and I think once you have had the experience it’s very difficult to walk away from it completely. …there were a couple of times when I actually came close to tears because it was that emotional and it just got right inside my head. It just brings everything out of you it allows you to free your emotions. This may sound strange because of the darkness of some of it but I just find your music lovely.”
'Let's face it, you're a Guardian Journalist's wet dream"
- John Clay, RANTBOX TV
