"Somewhere between sweeping post-rock soundscapes and dreamy shoegaze-pop lies the latest soon-to-break-out San Francisco indie band, sea knight." — Good Times
 

"A stunner, dreamy, and strummy, and psychedelic, moody and melancholic, the traditional guitars/bass/drums augmented by violin, which gives the sound a sweeping, epic and emotional vibe, not to mention the powerful vocals... equal parts Pixies/Breeders pop smarts, and shoegaze-y Mazzy Star haze... slow building to something much more epic, maybe like a girl pop Godspeed if that makes any sense... with a lush sonic palette, and a propensity for epicry that definitely makes sea knight something special." — Aquarius Records (by Andee of A Minor Forest!!)

 "I'd really like to hammer home the point that this is a must-see band. sea knight told a story, musically, on stage...This is an edge of your seat band, and will receive my first ever New Britches Award, because after you see sea knight, you'll need some new ones as your old ones will have been blown away." — iHeartSFBands.com, Bottom of the Hill show review

"sea knight is one of those bands people stop and stare at through the venue window...Their songs are sweeping, melodic, grungey" — SantaCruz.com

"Intense howling vocals backed by a huge cloud of percussion, violin and guitar—it was all goosebumps for those in the crowd." — The Daily Californian, Rickshaw Stop show review

"Over partly punk or grunge percussion flowed swooning rivers of violin and bass, with singer Linda’s hypnotic siren yowl...another example of rock done intelligently as well as passionately—rock for the whole of the soul." — Santa Barbara Independent, SOhO show review

"Captivating, subtly gripping, delicately engrossing... Listen closely and you can pick out some shoegaze, a dash of psychedelia, traces of Sonic Youth angst (especially on 'Concrete' with its pained, questioning refrain) and melodic sensibilities worthy of the Pixies. The instrumental 'Crows Came and Spoke of New Beginnings' even touches on hard rock as the slow burn of subdued guitars and restrained drums gradually devolves into ripping chords, crashing cymbals and haunting vocal wails... Fans of minimalist indie rock that can still pack a punch won't want to miss out."  — The Bay Bridged

"A Coke and Mentos explosion of sound... Every note tells a story and every letter was put there for a reason." — Music Putty

"sea knight plays gorgeous, melodic, dreamy indie pop." — Selected Things

"Oscillating tempos, dreary to bright tones and remarkable howls and wails. Frontwoman Linda Sao’s vocals are much more than a voice but a distinct instrument ... For fans of rock and alternative rock, sea knight is a show to see." — Examiner, The Night Light show review

"dream pop, shoegaze, and psych rock" — The Deli Magazine  

"The vocals were like hot syrup dripping all over my face." some guy named Roger after a show

Genuine emotion is at the foundation of this San Francisco 4-piece's 2014 debut EP, WHERE ARE YOU, with Linda (vocals/guitar), Cory (drums), Patrick (guitar), and Sami (bass/violin) crafting moody indie rock that swells and simmers. Music aside, this is SF's unintentional Band of Twinsies that's shared the stage with Rogue Wave, John Vanderslice, Widowspeak, Lady Lamb, Quilt, S, Little Comets, Rathborne, Dan Potthast, Upset, and more.
