"Bitesize punk blizzard from London's riot grrrl torch-bearers." Riots Not Diets

"A delightful taste of what to expect from their imminent debut." The Girls Are

"If you haven't heard TEDS yet - now is the time. We're talking the guitar/vocal interplay of Sleater-Kinney, the noisy snark of Future Of The Left and the uncompromising aggression of Bikini Kill all rolled into one gloriously terse sound. The guitars on 'Future Imperfect' are frantic/manic/thrilling, the percussion massive and utterly unstoppable. The moment the instrumentaion kicks back in after an acapella bridge in particular is the kind of perfect musical moment that makes you want to really upset the neighbours. 'Hobsons Choice' blasts past in under two minutes, maddened choruses pretty much disappearing into the pulse of energy that propels the verses. 'Outside' slows things down a little, but retains momentum - you could imagine dancing to this beat in the most evil indie club imaginable. Throughout each song, lead singer Tegan's vocals power out of the surge of noise like a woman possessed. She sings with power; she yells with anger; she shrieks like hell is on her tail." Not Right zine

"Tegan’s vocals are on point at all times; smooth when needed but give her a second to catch her breath and she switches to her ‘scream so loud it could shred metal’ brilliance. Opener ‘Future Imperfect’ is a belter of a track and a well loved part of their usual set. Tegan coyly purrs “everything you believe is a lie” before unleashing everything on us. ‘Hobson’s Choice’ opens with a spoken word call and response number the band usually use to open their set. The speed punk cum riot grrrl track hurtles along for just over 2 minutes then collapses in on itself almost as if it can’t take anymore. ‘Outside’ is bravado in song form. Keep your guns raised, eyes on the prize. Hen’s Teeth is a compact, furious taster of the best that TEDS can offer."
