What the critics say:

"…edgy art-rock, an act primed for success…" KERRANG!

"…a frankly irresistible mix of first-album Blondie, B52’s, Sioxsie, Kim Wilde and Duran Duran…Neon Commando EP is a pop treasure chest…" SUNDAY TIMES CULTURE

"…Surferosa are nothing short of fantastic…nothing on this earth can prepare you for the phenomenon that is singer Mariann…..strutting around in purple heels, she doesn’t think she’s headlining Wembley she really believes it – Surferosa are this year’s must-see" ROCK SOUND

"…a strong synth punk debut – a name to watch" MUSIC WEEK

"…if you need a good dose of glamour catch Surferosa before they hit the big time….their synth-punk is a breath of fresh air…" THE TICKET, MIRROR

"…Mariann is a punk goddess…their sound is vibrant and tuneful, they have humour, energy and are a real treat live – what more can you want from rock n roll in these days of sqeaky clean pop clones…" WHATS ON IN LONDON
