‘A Sweet Niche instantly won me over, reminding me of the post-jazz stylings of The Comet is Coming with its crooning brass section but becoming an amazing hybrid I would describe as ArcTanGent Whiplash. Really very cool, definitely need to listen to more of this band. I can easily see these artists blowing the roof off the house at live events'

‘A Sweet Niche are the ones to watch. They've evolved from a trio into a much bigger band, have some serious compositional skills and fuse punk, jazz and rock in ways I've not quite heard done before ... I advise everyone to make time to see them.’
