Upset
‘Rouge Carpet Disaster’ sparks with electricity.
90
DIY

If there’s any shred of justice in the world, this is going to be a future emo classic – and it’s fully deserving of it.

Clash

‘Rouge Carpet Disaster’ exists in a realm of its own. Ambition is carved into every track, from the grand lyricisms to the bold sonic shifts to the painfully exposed vocal performance.

The Line of Best Fit

Versatile, and vital Rouge Carpet Disaster easily begs comparisons to legends of rock history, but then in the same breath defies them.

Gigwise

With Rouge Carpet Disaster, Static Dress have made an assured debut album that sees them exploring styles beyond their post-hardcore beginnings and while they no doubt embrace that sound, and do it very well, there is plenty more going on here and that is what will elevate them.

Dork

A band designed to matter, they’re one of the most exciting prospects around.

Kerrang!

It’s that kind of intuitive eye for detail – and uncompromising ability to execute – that makes RCD feel like some lost masterpiece from the time before ‘emo’ became a dirty word, and also something tearing a brand new hole for the future.

Static Dress's long awaited debut (no, apparently that interlude filled album doesn't count for some reason) is finally here.

That's honestly the biggest gripe I have with the album. It lacks ... read more

Ayyy, we got some local boys on the list alongside Yard Act! I fully expected "Attempt 8" to hit SUPER hard out of nowhere considering how much power the first two tracks gave but was instead greeted with a mellow interlu- HOLY F*CK COURTNEY, YOU NEED TO RELAX. I came into this album with a Metalcore expectation but after only 4 songs everything switches up with an incredible intensity. It's a bit too heavy for me to come back to over and over again, but I can't deny that this album ... read more
