CRITIC REVIEWS

DIY

It’s a truly special debut, one that makes strange magic at every turn.

Under The Radar

It’s a thrilling and thoroughly modern album that manages to be experimental, dangerous, swaggering, unique, and also hugely accessible.

AllMusic

Their chameleonic approach is never garish, with strong songs being the main takeaway and all the experiments with production and style just the weird icing on the cake.

80
Clash

An authentic and contemporary guitar sound, ‘925’ is a snappy and raw blend that bounces the listener into the more unexpected edges of the imagination.

Exclaim!

925 is a cohesive, enjoyable, drug-infused debut about two longtime friends trying to make sense of being young in a dreary world.

The Skinny

925 is a largely amorphous mass lacking in personality. Luckily, Sorry offer enough promise that forgiveness should be easy.

925 is another example that post-punk and noise rock are still going strong, without showing any signs of fatigue. It's not new, it's been years now that bands/artists can their energies generally in the 80/90's, simply because they are mostly children. The duo Sorry has been building little by little and seems to have been thinking about their album since the end of 2017, today we are lucky to have the final result.

First of all I appreciate and find really interesting the weird universe and ... read more

It took me way too long to realize 925 was "nine to five" as in a 9-5 job. :facepalmemoji:

Titties.

Good now I have you attention. From the land of indie rock comes yet another album that comes notoriously close to showing a woman's breasts. I am semi-familiar with this band, but if you'd told me they were dropping an album just a week ago my response would have been "please leave me alone I'm writing my Dua Lipa review" (which is one of the best reviews I've ever written ... read more

As I'm listening to this I realize just how hard it is to box in this debut by Sorry. Is it post-punk? Indie rock? Grunge? Shoegaze? Dream pop? Punk?

That's the magic. It's nothing. Sorry doesn't care what they are, and neither should you.

London-based Sorry come through on their debut with a complete lax energy, as lead singer Asha Lorenz sings as if she's filing her nails the whole time, and backing vocalist Louis O’Bryen is just laying down. It's this cynical and disregarded outlook ... read more

This is such an intriguing release. There are songs that sound like Alanis Morrissette is fronting the Talking Heads. And then there are tracks that have NO DEFINABLE COMPARISON AND ITS REALLY COOL THAT I CANT THINK OF ANYTHING. What a solid debut! Great stuff.

woah! 925 is a really disturbing-sounding album, and it's not afraid to be. sorry begins the album with a string of great and dark songs, and then they carry these aesthetics the entire way through the album. and get this—it doesn't become boring! highlights include: "right round the clock," "in unison," "starstruck," and "wolf."
