“The Best Support Band We’ve Had In Years” – Debbie Harry, Blondie
“After seeing Duveaux on this particular stage [Hard Rock Rising Stage, Isle of Wight Festival] earlier in the weekend, I thought I had found the best new band this stage had to offer. Watching The Carnabys perform though, I have to eat those words because if Duveaux were impressive– these guys are astounding. Every single member of the band has a natural stage presence and showmanship, but their lead singer Jack Mercer quite easily has the swagger to be the next Alex Turner in the making. Aside from mastering the art of crowd charming, The Carnabys have the rock and roll substance to match… every song screams NME insta-hit and forthcoming single ‘Pocket’ is definitely going to get them abruptly crashing in to every musical radar around” -Natt, 7bitarcade.com
‘They are as tight as a ducks a**hole, brimming with charisma and energy, and possess a musicianship that is staggering in light of their tender years’ – Pinch TV
“I have seen the future, and the future is The Carnabys” – Phil Manzenera, Roxy Music
“They’re all just 19, but their sound is fully grown. Lead singer Jack Mercer‘s young frame hides a deceptively husky voice, perfected for the balls-out garage-rock swagger that their swinging sixties name suggests” – VH1
“Their passion, soul, charisma and musical maturity are forces to be reckoned with” – The Florentine
“In London, a journalist went as far as describing them as the best band to come out of West London since The Who. I have to agree really” Walter Combi, Emergenza Worldwide
