“Sunny garage rock with dash, shizzle and superfly choruses from Galway-based underground supergroup” Jim Carrol, On the Record, The Irish Times.

“Glowing garage pop, catchy and super fun” Niall Byrne,

“Dott have some infectious tunes on their Button EP… “Leave Tonight” and “Let’s Do It” are especially good.” Bill Pearis, Brooklyn Vegan

Dott is a band that astutely turns that inherent sweetness into a melee of crunchy guitars, masterful breakdowns, and deliberate “oo”s and “ahh”s that don’t put the song too far into pop territory. Dayna Evans, Impose Magazine
