CRITIC REVIEWS

musicOMH
Le Bon and Presley are certainly a potent cocktail and this is one of the most uncommonly satisfying releases of the year so far, whose charms reveal themselves best after a few plays.

The 405

On Hermits on Holiday they have knocked out nine fascinating tracks with effortless skill.

The Line of Best Fit

Hermits On Holiday is that rarest of treats, a side-project that could be its writers’ day job.

80
Drowned in Sound
The record is far more avant-garde than any of le Bon’s solo material, and calls on the most antisocial aspects of Presley’s. It’s gnarled, it’s confounding, it’s strong-armed, and you’re sure it’s winking at you every once in awhile.

Pitchfork

Most of Hermits on Holiday is pretty spontaneous and free-form, but it rarely lapses into the stuff of jam-band nightmares.

NME
By the end, it’s more than enough noodling, but you can’t help but marvel as Drinks shred their fingertips.

AllMusic
Neither Presley nor Le Bon should give up their main gigs for DRINKS, but if they got together now and then to record an album with as much good-natured charm and tricky bits as this, that'd be just fine.
70
Loud and Quiet

‘Hermits on Holiday’ is the sound of two musicians at the top of their game doing whatever the hell they want, just to amuse themselves.

70
Uncut

The end result is something that’s freaky and funny, as rigorously experimental as it is gleefully entertaining.

40
Under The Radar
Unfortunately, the combined effort of these two rather different artists does not prove to be seamless.
