⚘ Press Clippings ⚘

“On their third album, “Crocus,” this Ohio four-piece delivers tender and sometimes unnerving songs of the heart, wrapped in thickets of expressive violin and delicate harmony.” - The New York Times

“At its best, Crocus is a walk on a cold April night, half star-lit and half street-lit, in a twilight zone of memory and desire.” - Flood Magazine

"The Cincinnati folk-rock quartet’s third album is artfully and interestingly composed, a snapshot of four people figuring out their identities both as individual humans and as a subtly defiant band." - Pitchfork

"Almost is definitely a record I’m going to be returning to a lot this year." - NPR's All Songs Considered.

"...there’s a mesmerizing intricacy to the indie-rock understatement of 'Lunar Rover.' Given a chance, it's immersive." - The New York Times: Jon Pareles

"The Ophelias come up with something bold, polyvalent, and carefully self-assured." - Spill Magazine: Michelle Morgan
