Rah Rah Press:
“Very accomplished despite their youth, Rah Rah plays immense, poetic rock tunes…” -Montreal Gazette
“There’s no doubt that Rah Rah are Canadian. Their beyond catchy but blunt rock songs were dressed with keyboards and violins, and in a very Weakerthans-esque manner they brought their awkward sing-along inducing live performance to a crowded audience at the Boat that couldn’t help but clap along! It leads me to believe in the near future we’ll be hearing a lot more from these prairie dwellers.” - Exclaim
"Going Steady’s a realistic, vivid lament on the frustrations of young love" - NOW
