“Nearly a year since his self-titled debut, Farrell evolved International Zombies of Love into an expansive, synthetic cavalcade of joyful rebellion last month on his sophomore record, ‘You Heard This Wish’. The result is a refreshing dose of positivity found in life’s loneliest corners and an experience that is uniquely its own, in a world of daft formulaic sound” A Music Blog Yea?

“Buzzy…wistfully cathartic…cinematic…sprawling…with sci-fi textures.” Exclaim

 “At first it’s hard to tell how all these songs fit onto one record, but what is clear is that it just feels right.” Fresh Print

 “On strong sophomore outing You Heard This Wish Farrell’s gritty voice and songs remain intact…no need to flee from these zombies.” New Canadian Music
