"Welcome to the World of Tumbleweed Pop."
"With its unique, diverse sonic aspects, Joy Ride Opus offers tasty, captivating music, at once atypical yet mainstream."

"To rejoice and get on a multicolored cart with yes, indie pop sounds and only that you could hear from this band."

"The acoustic finger picking on this track is really engaging. It starts off with a flavor that feels perfectly timeless. The vocal style from Archer Monk feels like it could have come from the “good old days.” When the harmony vocal enters the track as well, listeners are reminded of the best of what made 60s folk revival music so iconic. For a more recent comparison, fans of the Milk Carton Kids will find a lot to enjoy about this transcendent, moving folk sound."

"Listening to Archer Monk's timeless music takes you back to the days of rock and roll musical icons with amazing vocals, melodies, lyrics and songs you just want to keep playing over and over."
