"The Dandelion War successfully does the airy, Radiohead meets Sigur Ros thing, though not as long-winded. Like other bands in the genre, dynamics shift between multi-instruments, and strong beats provide a solid backdrop for the melodies. The vocals sometimes give way to the playing, which will keep the band from leaning into Coldplay territory. It sounds like they think that's a good thing." -Oakland Tribune

"Like Explosions (in the Sky), The Dandelion War use shimmering guitars, building drums and crescendos of noise to paint pictures."
