"Utilizing a mixture of Electronic, Pop, Rap, and Rock, Icon For Hire
creates a sound that is very unique all their own, making
You Can't Kill Us their boldest release to date." - Cryptic Rock
"Lyrically, each and every song is incredibly vulnerable and transparent,
but without trying too hard to be universally relatable. The fact of the matter is,
the issues addressed on this album are struggles that countless people face every day.
It's real, and that's what makes it such a great listen." - The Prelude Press
