"‘Don’t Yah Feel Better’ lights the torch with a succinct pot of gleaming production and honest simplicity. Assured, demonstrative and undisguised, The Velveteins crack out the surf-pop hooks"

- GoldFlakePaint

"... a collision of the Kinks and the Libertines, rollicking garage, moody surf [...and] pop classicism with a rough edge."  

- Exclaim! 

"The Velveteins are taking all their inspiration from the past but adding the original touch to it. Any band can replicate the sounds and styles of the 60's and 70's but few can take it and make it better." 

- 3rd Outing

"It feels like The Velveteins exist in a parallel universe where the fifties never truly ended"

- Geyser Music
