From mangoneblog.com's review of our July 2012 headline gig at the Zanzibar, Liverpool:
"The D-Tales, meanwhile, come out rather better at not acknowledging limits. I can’t say I’ve ever considered a bouzouki in a pop band before, but shit, they pull it off. They’ve got a pile of satisfying pop songs with a nice, twisted jazz feel – honky-tonk keyboards, bright, sparky guitars and splashy cymbals – but never sound dated. They’re lively, but not theatrical. Poppy, but not irritating. Upbeat, but not simple-minded. Their complex vocal melodies flit over and under a twee, offbeat, sunshine-y backdrop that calls up everything from later-Kinks to The La’s. With a new self-titled EP out, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see them over the next few months. Do yourself a favour and take it."
