Reviews from Plastic Magazine and Artisti Online

The reviews of “Replaced By Robots” keep rolling in.  The British blog Plastic Magazine has a thoughtful review that considers both the lyrics and music in detail.  They describe the former as “a delightful mix of humour and social commentary, poking fun at the idea of robots never needing breaks, vacations, or drug tests, while humans scramble to adapt to this technological takeover.”  They describe the song's music as “a playful indie rock composition, exuding a classic power pop charm wrapped in a retro aesthetic.
