Reviews for the new Sidleys' Breathless Album

"Overall, Breathless by The Sidleys is an exquisite masterpiece. This is one group that has demonstrated what beauty a love for music can produce and use this medium of sound to instill a passion for their lifetime craft in their audience."

- Warlock Asylum International News 

"There are lively groovers such as the perky pop-rock of Break Your Fall and I Didn’t Know’s bluesy shuffle but their finest moments come when they are dealing with more considered sounds. Lullabies is a suitably lush pop ballad, The Ocean & The Wave an understated snippet of shimmering guitar work and Sweetest Hush is a soul-infused slice of sonic sass."

- Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture 

 "Opening the album up with style is the sweeping gestures of “Lately I Don’t See You Anymore”. Her voice has fire behind it while the whole track races through. Urgently delivered “Break Your Fall” features a great sense of defiance as a sense of optimism reigns supreme. Dreamy and outright beautiful “Lullabies” serves as the highlight of the album. With a poppy spirit that recalls latter day Elliott Smith.... “Breathless” shows off the Sidleys deft skill in creating a world that feels uniquely their own."

-Beach Sloth 

..."The Sidleys create memorably sophisticated pop music. They point to influences as diverse as Stevie Wonder and the Beatles. On the surface, that may seem like much too wide a range. After listening to this eleven-song album, these two inspirations make much more sense. The Sidleys are just as comfortable singing something with a soul groove, as they are with laying something British Invasion influenced down. Their team, consisting of an inventive instrumentalist and a striking led singer, is an unbeatable combination. Indeed, some moments here just might leave you breathless. It is one strong album."

Reviews for The Sidleys' "The Love You Make" Album

"Full of vitality and color is the funky psychedelic rock stylings of the Sidleys 'The Love You Make'. Passionate to its very core the way the songs unfold gives them a majestic tenor...Melodies are infectious and the grooves so inviting..." - Skope Magazine https://skopemag.com/2017/06/02/the-sidleys-the-love-you-make

"The group cites a wide variety of influences spanning several generations, and the listener can sense both musical kinship and a depth of artistic maturity in the songs, especially on new album The Love You Make, which was released earlier this year. Blending a vintage feel with modern energy, The Sidleys create a timeless, soulful sound that is simultaneously easy on the ears and relentlessly hooky."
