Magenet Magazine - I Love You’s toe-tapping grooves, combined with untamed noise, will guarantee to make
any listener get out on the dance floor or just ingest a large pile of drugs.
Boston Hassle - This is the kind of persistent party music that subtlety infects even the most intractable ‘too-cool’
listener, gradually seizing their nervous system and transforming them into a devoted slave of the dancefloor,
ready for sacrifice.
Fensepost - It becomes clear that I Love You knows and lives fun. There’s a chaos in the music they make,
an unquestionable avant noise; but it’s backed by a consistency and an organization that assembles a makeshift
order like the Fibonacci sequence in nature. This is a band that builds upon structure and they’re not about
taking that order and fucking it up a bit. It’s a quality every single great experimental noise band possesses,
and it’s one that I Love You has mastered.
