about

***************************************

Shibuya Crossings deliver glorious pop with catchy hooks and joyous melodies. The vibe and feel on the album is nice loose and live sounding. I like bands who just do their thing, letting the music speak for itself, not prepared to be part of a scene just doing it irrespective of fashion or trend
The Music Critic 4/5

***************************************

Picked out your track for the summer yet? Then look no further then the new single from Shibuya Crossings. 'At Eight In A Spanish Bar' is a full flavoured indie/pop song with joyful harmonies musically and vocally and engaging hooks that dance with sunshine. Previous single 'Take It Out On Me' immediately follows with the same mixture of irresistible joy. The singles are
rivalled for best track on DOYA by 'If It Isn’t Getting Better', a track that flies on good riffs and great vocal harmonies. DOYA is a solid and spirited album that stirs the listener into having fun
Red Hot Velvet

***************************************

Spoiler alert: This might be the sleeper album of the year. There's no fuss with Shibuya. Everything seems simple but unique, clean but unfamiliar and it's that sort of combination that makes them so appealing. It’s a collection of songs that will undeservedly will fly under a lot of radars. Shibuya Crossings are going to surprise a lot of us with support slots, indie discos and festival appearances this summer. If you want some of that snarky indie credibility, get this on your MP3 player.
Room Thirteen 11/13

***************************************

‘DOYA’, overall, is overtly indie – a statement I’d usually only utilise as a sneer; however, on this occasion, it doesn’t feel as such and I’m unable to feel any contempt or disdain. Why? Well, because it’s genuinely, quite bloody good.
Shout4Music 7/10

***************************************

It takes no effort to listen to this album. It consistently pleases the senses. Lyrically speaking it’s a quality album with each song tackling its own issue, and coupled with the intriguing quality to front man Declan Harrington’s voice, this helps the record to stand out from the crowd. For a relatively new band, this is a stand out album. it shows the potential of a band growing in stature. A band deserved of a chance to make it big.

DOYA sounds fresh and full of summery blissed out pop

***************************************

“DOYA” is a joyful collection of songs. Far more worthy of your time, than many of the over-hyped Irish albums currently taking up column inches, in the national press.
