"I instantly loved this track. The first thing I hear, the familiar fuzzy wonderfulness of a Dan Auerbach guitar riff. But no! Not this time! It's The Van Goghs playing tricks on us. The song blossoms into something else entirely! Sometimes indie-pop, sometimes bluesy garage rock, always awesome."

"Apparently The Van Goghs were our answer and we didn’t even know it. Until now.
Here’s Escape of the Jellyfish in 4 words: Awesome garage pop band."

"Escape of the Jellyfish, the latest EP by Chicago based The Van Goghs is like a wonderful musical maze. Each song takes you on surprising detours. Penquino is a party of sounds with a thick vocal harmony throughout and the sound moves effortlessly from a Brit rock jam to a dreamy mellotron-ish ending. Daring musical departures like this make the songs on this EP so damn good."
