"Judging from this album, it was a stroke of genius to match Tom Cora's earthy, aggressive cello with the bludgeoning force of The Ex at full throttle."
"You're thinking of The Ex and 'the right to piss and shit in different colours'. (...) Their music is dense and down-the-line, distantly allusive, subtle, grainy, open, full and proudly, alertly dissident."
"Indeed, most of 'Scrabbling' could be an intensely moving soundtrack for our times. 'Scrabbling' has blood, sweat, tears and the sweetest sounding cello money can buy."
