- JON PARELES (NEW YORK TIMES)
"Burning up Brooklyn with their haunting and ethereal vocals and killer chill-inducing melodies. With so much hype built around their newly released debut album, Give Me Noise, I was shocked to find that the trio was unsigned. Someone snatch these girls up!"
"New Myths boast a stylish synth-pop sound on their debut Give Me Noise that belies their relative newness as a band."
"New Myths blew in like a cool Summer breeze as the headliner... and generally seduced the audience with some quality Go-Go’s meets Dum Dum Girls sounds. They manage to bring on the rawness of a power-trio 90’s Muffs with the smoothness of a glammed-out 80’s Blondie. Lead singer and guitarist Brit Boras belts out a tune like a modern Kate Bush while drummer Rosie Slater and bassist Marina Ross together blend synths with fuzzy guitars to produce a darkly rocking and yet strangely danceable sound."

"Yet while it could seem as if every Brooklynite with a laptop was in the CMJ lineup, New York is still home to bands as varied as . . . New Myths, whose updated new wave can sprout shoegaze distortion and three-part vocal harmonies."
- NEW YORK TIMES
"New Myths strike a pretty profound existential chord for me for a few reasons… [Their] morbidly danceable, often-synthetic, sounds remind me of my most lovely angsty teen years, ruled by the likes of Blondie and New Order… They also recently played . . . a set that my jaded ass didn’t actually have to pretend to be amused by… I actually was. Their debut LP embodies pretty much every kind of sonically morose ass-wiggler that could be expected of the children of post-punk, new wave, and synthpop."
- PHILTHY MAG
"NYC three-piece New Myths sent signals and rock-mystical gestures . . . sending out the first initial warning shot, “Howl”. Rosie Slater, Marina Ross, and Brit Boras traverse the city through the feet on the pavement verses that break into full lead weighted guitar choruses."
"Boras is a terrific frontwoman, Slater a great drummer, and Ross a talented bassist. Ross’ onstage exuberance is infectious, and it brought to mind similar displays by Buzzcocks’ Steve Diggle."
"New Myths instrumentally charge forward, offsetting their often grunge-y subject matter with sunburnt power chords, dynamic vocal gymnastics, and pervasive synth arpeggios. Such contrast allows the band to truly hone their strengths, primarily their ability to create rock that’s both crusty and glitzy, channeling a punk subject matter in a way that’s more polished than most (while maintaining that indefatigable spirit.)"
-THE DELI MAGAZINE
“The song had us yearning for the years of our teenage youth when easy times felt hard and “no one understood us!” While we can go hours raving about how angsty yet empowered the song makes us feel, the ultimate opinion lies on the ears of the listener.
"New York trio New Myths just released their debut album, Give Me Noise, a collection of darkly embroidered rock and synthpop, composed of drum hits that cast long shadows and synth tones that radiate an inner glow. Their guitars are supermassive and seem to suck away the air around them, and above this precise, conducted darkness their voices weave into gorgeous arabesques of harmony."
- THE GUARDIAN
"This is Spinal Tap . . . the new wave, pop-rock group New Myths, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The NYC trio pack a stylish punch of dark, slinky and most certainly catchy pop music. The girls have taken NYC by storm and are now out to conquer the world with their upcoming album, Give Me Noise ."
- GALORE MAGAZINE
"Overdriven guitars are layered over the band’s traditional synth sound to create a wonderfully angsty and energetic tune. The call and response vocals call back to memory classic 2010s hits like Muse’s “Resistance,” as well as provide a fun sing-song element to an otherwise heavy and rocking song.
"Neon-hued both visually and sonically, this power trio’s combination of intense electro-rock sonics, pop savvy, punkish energy, glam theatricality, and occasional gothy moodiness is something like the lovechild of Shirley Manson and Marilyn Manson who’s now all grown up and going to her first orgy with a guest list that includes the Hanson brothers circa “MmmBop” and the full cast of the Josie and the Pussycats movie during which a DJ is slated to spin tracks by Republica, Elastica, and Veruca Salt to set the proper mood."
