Praise for Ana Gog
‘A focus on composition and arrangements that might just set this band apart from the many other Irish bands’ - State
'Resemblance leaves the listener in little doubt of both the sonic and stylistic evolution Ana Gog have undergone since last year’s début album Making Trails.' - The Last Mixed Tape
'Ana Gog produce very energetic performances: one minute it’s loud, the next minute you could hear a pin drop' - Red Bull Music
'...a contemporary edge, stretching for the euphoric choruses of Arcade Fire or the idiosyncratic, classical-led methods of Owen Pallett' - The Irish Times
