"Bristolian fuzz rockers Empty Pools’ new single ‘Pacey Grey’ sounds like Pavement urging J Mascis not to go and cut his hair, while Television stand purposefully over them, sharpening their blade-like riffs." Q Magazine
“‘Liberation Prayers’ deploys the same sounds they honed on their excellent debut, ‘Saturn Reruns’, Pritchard’s steely vocals binding together the skittering drums and spiky guitars. 8/10.” NME
"Treading a perilous but perfectly realised path, it’s another tremendous collection from a genuine treasure of a band." Gold Flake Paint
“‘Liberation Prayers’ is an action movie of an EP and Empty Pools should be listened to, seen live and generally adored as quickly as your meek human body will allow.” Drunken Werewolf
