“’Car Crash Companion’ a courageous hook limbed rocker with emotionally explosive songwriting. When Noller bluntly shouts “I’m tired of my own brain fuck fuck fucking me,” there is a sense of an edgy Bob Mould and Robert Pollard creeping underneath that melodic presentation.” – Glide Magazine

“On his latest single, “Intro (vert)”, Noller offers a gorgeous blend of folk-pop honesty and plainspoken sentiment. An acoustic guitar is strummed and rattled as he documents the decline of a relationship and the steps taken by each person to extricate themselves from it. But there is light here, not merely a wallowing in the fallow emotions that often accompany these painful experiences. There is humor and optimism buried in the words they share in their disjoining. There is hurt but also an understanding of how that hurt may shape them and offer solace in its embrace.” – Beats Per Minute

“This masterpiece is one of those rare songs that left you stuck on repeat all day long.” – Cheers to the Vikings

There is a healthy dose of vocal drive and a little fury from the guitars that push the listener into a happy place.” – Independent Music Reviews

“…their band plays “folk rock with thorns,” but I think they’re underselling themselves.
They’ve just put out a terrific double CD, “The Perfect Shade of Green,”
with two dozen tracks that are just as much rock as folk, with plenty of great hooks and twists along the way.”
Ross Riahala, The St. Paul Pioneer Press

“Disc one of “The Perfect Shade of Green” is all soaring vocals and
interweaving harmonies. Kyle and Noller’s voices mesh well over the instrumentation. Strong major key melodies in songs like “Living Atop” and “Singing the Obits” keep the album grounded and pleasing without being boring.
It’s an entertaining indie-folk-rock romp.”
Conrad Shoenleber, The Minnesota Daily

“This album is beautiful, complicated, and most importantly very good.”

“Skittish has released a distinctive and vibrant
album that offers a refreshingly innovative reading
of the much-popularized indie folk-rock genre…Tragedy
of the Commons is an excellent example of how a compelling
artist like Noller can explore a wide range of musical interests
and make them work together. ” 4/5

“Skittish is a band that has been skimming along under
the radar, but that should change as soon as more of the
people with great taste, who frequent mp3 blogs, hear the
music. It’s by turns, folksy and then indie flavoured, but
more than these it’s very, very good”
—- SixEyes BlogSpot

“It is quite possible that Skittish has put out the best
album for the summer that I have ever heard…if you are
looking for that perfect album to roll down the windows
and crank up, then look no further it’s right here.”
