What people have been saying about Santa Marias:
“…the trio arm-wrestles the Who and wins (“Favorite Jeans”), traverses new wave avenues long since vacated by Blondie (“Mercury, the Sun & Moon”), and revisits/reinvents classic Jesus & Mary Chain fuzz-drone (“Wasted”).” Fred Mills Harp Magazine
“Imagine the cool simple groove of a great Jesus and Mary Chain song with the sexy vocals of say Dusty Springfield and you are somewhere in the range of NYC's 3 girl rockin band Santa Marias.” Bob Bert – BBGun Magazine
“This is music with a vitality that jumps up and slaps you around until you give it the attention it deserves…. music in the raw with no attempt to smooth out the rough edges.” bluesbunny.com
“From The Ashes Of The Friggs Emerges A Powerful, Compelling New Female Pop-Rock Trio. This Sublime Debut Album Will Leave You Begging For More. Santa Marias Rule!” Groove Entertainment
