"The stripped-down, revved up sound of ‘90s pop-punk complete with all its goofball antics is having a resurgent moment as those that grew up listening to it come into their own. Portland trio The Toads... blast out short, snarky, snarls of catchy guitar pop..." --Rogue Valley Messenger, 3/15/18
"The Toads are from Portland where it rains a lot but they sound like they write songs in sunny California.
The pop hooks are aplenty on the bands latest EP “It’s For You” (their second) and The Toads move the dial from power pop, to the guitar-driven punk pop of Weezer, to the harmonic vibe of the Beach Boys." --50Thirdand3rd, 1/2/18
"While they write separately, both [Matt K and Matt D] write great lyrics that reveal modern-day existential angst and self-awareness. Their energetic tunes, which are typically about two and a half minutes long, are also perfect for the ADHD generation- quick and to the point, with no obligatory filler." --Portland Notes, 12/20/2017
