The Skinny, 22 June 2009 "Taking notes from the rawness and haunting melody of grunge era noisemakers such as Sonic Youth, Pixies, and Shellac to name a few, Glasgow four-piece, United Fruit, are currently doing the rounds on the city’s underground scene and making a lasting impression as well as one hell of a noise."
