Lula Sweet reviews:
"At first glance...
Lula Sweet's disco synths mildly sweep in and take over the track.
Then you realize you're being swept away in a mish mesh
of electric guitars and dominant female vocals.
There's really strong elements in Lula Sweet's
basic beat work and the band's clever synths,
which are over-powering in just the right doses.
Cindy's clearly controlled voice is incredible.
The tracks are well-organized and well-produced,
with effective layering,
which is why I enjoyed every second of the music.
Not being highly-polished,
the recording gives Lula Sweet more
than a fair amount of pizzaz.
The vocals reminded me of all-female band
'Le Tigre' a lot at one point
and the guitars were almost reminiscent of
'Sisters of Mercy' at another,
all the while
keeping those funk bass lines.
A great, well-written mix of disco bass synths,
disco beats and rock n roll-reminiscent guitars.
This band's music is capable of turning a non-disco
believer into an appreciator of the forefathers of the genre.
Lula Sweet is primarily a persuasive funk
and rock n' roll blend above all else,
and Cindy is our new disco queen!"

“Minimalistic but extremely powerful and well-chosen
musical work, combined with a female singer who has
a versatile voice one can only be jealous of...”

“Vier talentrijke muzikanten en na een paar jaar begint de mayonaise serieus te ‘pakken’.”

“De single ‘Wilderbliss’ is het eerste wapenfeit en een aanzet voor meer, want de opvolger
‘Velvet Superman’ zit al in de pijplijn.”
