Here are some reviews of Singing Bridges' ep "Three Trains"

Das Klienicum
This trio offers five tracks, with William busy on drums, and Christine cheerfully handling the bass as well as sharing vocal duties with guitarist Tim. Something happened since the band’s debut release, “Sunny Day, Rainy Day.” The transformation, which consisted of more than just the band line-up, was worth it. Jangle pop … in its finest possible form.

CT Indie
Singing Bridges' Three Trains EP harkens back to the days of early 90s jangle pop. The 5-song CD is full of reverbed-out female vocals, jangly rhythm guitar, and a glimpse of sonic experimentation. Simple, straightforward songs like "Crazy Street" hammer the point home and show they definitely have an ear for the genre.

Tasty Fanzine
Simple melodies are layered on top of each other, simple chord progressions flow effortlessly and vocals are unaffected and sung as though by the pure of heart ... And if you don’t try to indulge in 7 minute guitar solos then you can put all your creative efforts into putting something together with love, something that might actually move someone - that my friends, is what it is all about.

Common Folk Meadow
There are lots of indie rock bands out there but I fell in love with just one of them and this is Yo La Tengo which I love with all my heart and soul. That’s it – ok, lots of other bands are good but not as great as Yo La Tengo. But now I’m in hope that Singing Bridges could be the second indie rock band in my life and I’m looking forward to great releases and beautiful music in the future.

What makes me sure of it? I think the whole musical style makes me sure because they remind me of Yo La Tengo and I don’t mean, that they copy them, but I think they really get the feeling for combining Indie Rock, a little punky attitude, noise elements and great singing.

…they mention Sonic Youth and The Wedding Present among others, and the opening track ('Bee') and the closing track ('Disappear') is not far away from the former of the those two bands. On the three songs in between, they mostly sound like a classic twee pop band, especially on 'Crazy Street'.
