published this excellent review on Unexploded;
"A new brilliant star rising in the horizon is what emerges when from Denmark.
This wave/rock pop act surprise us with an advance of the upcoming album,
offering a complete facet of his skills as a musician... The voice here is incredibly great,
and the use of certain atmospheres and percussive elements give you more reasons to be anxious to hear
the final album. "

Losing Today/The Sunday Experience
"Unexploded - two of the tracks - 'Unavoidable' and 'Bitchslapping A Crocodile'
literally kicked us out and just plain refused to give up their sounds.
The demurring gravitational tug of 'Invert' is neigh on impossible to resist,
a sublime slice of tenderly amorphous panoramic dream pop metered out by looping clock working beats,
lunar synth swirls, celestial opines and shimmering riff chimes all seductively harnessed
upon a pulsar like lovelorn liquid landscape set upon the subtle foundations of an
acutely pop calibrated kraut dialect,
we suspect we need to hear more and soon."
Unexploded got a good review last month at International alternative music site
"Unexploded ventures off to a synth rock style,
utilizing many layers of music and combining rock and electro to create
his own distinct style. Unexploded was a very pleasant surprise,
and I hope for Unexploded that he can get his name out there.
I think he'll be able to find a good audience.
This EP was very pleasant, with the strongest two tracks at the start.
Looking forward to hearing more from this artist."

Unexploded got a nice review in this months issue of Belgian music magazine
"This project delivers a pure crossover style mixing different styles like new wave, rock and pop.
The opening cut “Unavoidable” impressed me for the amazing production and stereo effects!
Unexploded reveals a mature sound and cool mix of impressive guitar parts and new wave bass lines.
Unexploded is hard to classify, but reveals a progressive sound.
The quieter and wafting “Bitchslapping A Crocodile” reveals an amazing amount of little details in the writing.
...This is a great piece of music!"

Unexploded recieves great review in DE magazine
"Unexploded 4-track demo: ...From the studio Unexploded produces this dense,
atmospheric and sometimes psychedelic drifting sound,
that efter the 20th time still is seductive and tempting to listen to.
and sometimes also slightly bitter feeling, that in the long run ultimately carry the Dane forward on his trip...
The song Invert is a delicacy, which really reveals the true multilayeredness of Unexploded's creativity.
According to release plan the first album of unexploded is due... We wait with anticipation and excitement."

Unexploded was reviewed in the current issue of UK
Unexploded: Venomlake (promo EP);
"Limited promo release from Copenhagen based wave act Unexploded, which is the creative genius of the
singer/songwriter/producer of the same name.
The tracks on offer really showcase Unexploded's creative studio know how,
and with elements of electro and darkwave this EP gives a great insight into the dark world of the creator."

Nemoland was highlighted as one of the recommended events in the June/July issue of
Copenhagen nightlife/lifestyle magazine
"Unexploded plays atmospheric electro-rock, dominated by epic synths, chanting vocals
and condensed layers of grumbling guitars.
One easily dreams into their universe, and here and there one is reminded of The Cure,
Jean Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode og Finnish cult band
This Empty Flow. A night black starry sky would be an obvious backdrop for Unexploded's dark edged sci-fi-rock."

The Muse's Muse
"Mature and modern, Unexploded’s EP hones a slick,
alternative dance rock sound that’s drenched in the highlights of all things atmospherically seductive.
Unexploded constructs their own signature sound, resulting in an intoxicating juxtaposition of soft, yet dark,
electronic beats that climax into layered vocal bliss.
Unexploded is a strong musical offering for those who love the combination of rock and synth."
DJ AZ from Germany wrote the following about Unexploded after receiving a promo disc in April:
"Very interesting with an own style. "Unavoidable" took residence in my head. Catchy!
"Bitchslapping A Crocodile" is a great dark crawler. Impressive!
The other two tracks are fine tunes too. Unexploded's sound is clear with a powerful bass.
Music not for the masses but for connoisseurs! Recommended!
I wish them the very best for their career, Unexploded deserve attention."
Unexploded performed a great and recordbreaking open air show at Nemoland
presenting both classic Unexploded songs and new material from the forthcoming album.
The crowd was cheering, clapping along, dancing on tables and wanting encore,
all of which is extremely rare at Nemoland.

"Copenhagen’s own Unexploded - A danceable mix of great notes to keep you moving.
When music comes along that takes me on a trip, it warms my heart. I found this with this great act from Denmark.

Though that description may seem like an unlikely and possibly unkind sound combination,
it's actually quite pleasing. Listen to Unexploded's song "Invert" and you'll understand."
