“The leaders of ’90s bands Shudder to Think and That Dog have gone spooky, to great end, with music that’s helped turn the Showtime series into a phenomenon.” – Variety
“If Shrill was the duo’s pop album and TheRepublic of Sarah a Radiohead-style art-drama, then Yellowjackets is their angsty goth record, with a side of the supernatural.” – Pitchfork
