"A tip for lovers of two-chord songs, Canshaker Pi and consorts -
three members of The Klittens even play in Canshaker Pi side-project Personal Trainer."

''Manic Dixi Dream Girl is a powerhouse song, determined and confident in its essence, but with lyrics that speak of and to troubled minds: “overall comfortable but not afraid to die” is only one of the hit-the-nail-on-the-head moments of the song. (...) Manic Dixi Dream Girl is a worthy debut for a band that we most certainly haven’t heard the last of. A massive shoutout to the Netherlands for producing such wonderful talent and sharing it with the world. In music we stand united.''

"At midnight, the girls from The Klittens kick off. They do that in an extremely charming and disarming way. They don't take attitude, but play pop music straightforwardly."

''The Klittens: bleeding gums and British dreams. Five-piece
fuzzpopband has been adopted by the Amsterdam indie scene
and is now aiming for the U.K.''

'Once you hear a piece of music such as ‘Bleeding Gums’ you don’t forget it easily, that’s not to say it’s an instant earworm. (...) You think you know where you stand with The Klittens until they serve up a sonic curveball.'

"They played the Star and Shadow (Newcastle, UK) with confidence and power, making
no mistakes and protruding nothing but lively indie sounds."

'Their first cassette EP, Pigeonhole, an interesting and promising debut which hosts three tracks, each of which displaying a different sonic feel whilst at the same time nailing potent and frequently feministic lyricism, a combination that makes the band ironically hard to pigeonhole.'
31 July 2020
'The Klittens present Google Translate at its best with Liebe Resi. (...) For the music video the ladies each went to work with an (improvised or not) greenscreen, which would undoubtedly have been a very bad idea for many bands. Not for The Klittens, who are not averse to a nice game of DIY.'

''There’s always been a nonchalance to The Klittens’ music, a sense that these five have decided that it doesn’t really matter if you may not be the most skilled instrumentalist as long as you write the coolest songs on the block. And while that devil may care attitude is definitely still present in new offering ‘Canned Air’, it also seems as if there’s a newfound ambition to the track.''
15 October 2021
''Congruently, 'Canned Air' masterfully works its way to a cathartic punk rock release.''
