"Jonny Couch writes pop songs you can sink into. Animal Instinct, is a collection of warm, analog-synth-heavy pop songs that blend the dancey edge of New Romantic greats Visage and Ultravox with the softer tones of modern keyboard-driven popsters Future Islands and Tame Impala." (June 2018 Print Edition)
"Jonny Couch seemed to be beaming with pride and energy. He delivered his set with the utmost passion and executed every note perfectly."
Louder Than War
"A knack for maddeningly catchy melodies and pretty much every song sounds like a hit"
"On a bed of pillowy, ‘80s-style synth ballads and boisterous power-pop, all silliness is reflected back with a true sense of musicianship and earnestness."
"That was a fun set. Couch and his band were campy, glam, power pop fun."
BTR Today Tune Up
"He has a knack for writing catchy lyrics that make you want to tap your toes, bang your head and feel the feels."
