“The trio have burned a lot of the haze off their sound (and some of the
ear-bleeding volume), in favor of more melody and danceability, albeit in a
gothy '80s kind of way.” - Brooklyn Vegan
“Weekend kiss the curb with their new single, “Mirror”. It’s a promising
jig for Jinx.” - Consequence of Sound
“Note those bells and whistles, folks...not to say the deeper into Jinx we
travel the noise won't greet us with a screeching wail we've come to
expect, keeping those plugs at arm's length, but Weekend is not hiding in
the feedback.” - Impose Magazine
"All the subtlety of a high-pressure firehose...a dour, post-punk
atmosphere that goes for immersion rather than force." - Pitchfork
“Ominous razor-sharp textures enrapture, "Mirror" foretells the future of
Weekend, where gloom and pandemonium is a joyous return.” - Prefix
“It's steamy post-punk with a circular bass attack leading the way over
galloping drums...[Weekend’s] trademark guitar-pile assault.” - Rcrd Lbl
“Craftsmanlike post-punk” - Stereogum
