    Bringing together two parallel creative paths, the result is an irresistible tautness that shapes their entire first full-length, angular lines competing with Trilling’s diary scribble writing; her vulnerable admissions bolstered by a serious punch.

    The nervous, blemished energy of Forth Wanderers is gripping with heaping amounts of charm, bitterness, sarcasm, and unease in the right proportions, making our insecurities stare back at us.

    Altogether, it's a rock-solid set, notable for good songs as well as a distinctive if simultaneously throwback sound.

    The joyfully raucous Forth Wanderers bears testament to just how well the distance formula is working.

    Trilling’s lyrics are the glue that holds together this powerful but vulnerable album.

    Despite the lack of variance from song to song, each of the 10 songs here are finely written candidates for radio. ... The issue is that it’s not worth it to dig through all 10 of these tracks to find the nuanced intricacies that so frequently play second fiddle to loud rock and roll.
