"On first listen to their album, “Millions of Comforting Arms” Singleskin prove that if you write great songs, people will listen. They write passionate, uplifting tunes, where less means more. In the tradition of Sparklehorse, Teenage Fanclub & Neil Young(some of their influences), Singleskin know what it takes to rock, but they also have the ability to slow things down and make everything magic"
"Singleskin offer finely crafted melodic rock which a few years ago might have been seen as one pop duck in a massive AM drivetime pool. Now, however, it sounds vibrant. They lump a big fistful of tune in your face in a finely winsome style. All the influences are there: Big Star, dEUS, Sparklehorse and James Taylor, to name a few, with a dash of modern Americana thrown in for good measure."
“Singleskin definitely look the part, with singer Paul Dunning’s amiable charm inviting comparisons to a more masculine version of Fran Healy. And they have a tune for any occasion - sun-kissed summer anthems nestle surprisingly comfortably alongside fuzzy, bedraggled rockers like Crack This Decorum.
Elsewhere, Dunning’s songwriting is so sharp and breezy in its seeming effortlessness that Recoil’s chorus of "na-na-na-na-na-doo-doo" makes perfect sense in the end.”
