"Application Of The Twig creates a different take for the band but still contains an indie rock pulse. The record has a nice balance all the way through and it honestly could be their most complete work to date!" -Chris Anthony//The Fire Note [https://thefirenote.com/2021/07/09/video-premiere-smug-brothers-seemed-like-you-to-me-2/]
"Smug Brothers seem to up their game with each subsequent release with material that is equally engaging as it is infectious and with the forthcoming Application of The Twig, Smug Brothers may just have released their finest record to date." -Bryan Hammil//The Ash Gray Proclamation [https://theashgrayproclamation.com/2021/09/07/smug-brothersapplication-of-the-twig-interview-album-premiere/]
"A common trait among the different movements of this album was the immediate back-and-forth contrast between brighter and darker-sounding jangles...It’s a very art-house manner of handling things..." -Zakary Kolesar/Tuned Up [https://www.iamtunedup.com/smug-brothers-application-of-the-twig/]
