Reviews

In terms of sheer accessibility, it’s hard to overlook the melodic punch of second track The Deep End, which is among Steward’s finest work. Releasing three quality albums in five years is no small feat. We All Want To deserves acclaim.

The Australian

It’s the perfect summer record to see you through winter. The Haze’s opener, “Eileen Afternoon”, is undeniably youthful, while sounding firmly grounded in history, while “Party Girls” just sounds like a teenage riot. We All Want To have nailed it.

Rolling Stone

..They’ve become a kind of sweet-yet-scuzzy, indie-rock super-group influenced by bands like Broken Social Scene, The Kinks and The Go-Betweens that feels oddly familiar, yet completely fresh and organic in their sound.
