"From garage band beginnings to a storm of success, One Flew West is using Denver, CO as a launchpad for what’s sure to be a bright career. Jump on the bandwagon early...”

"Pissed off at our political climate? Ever want to scream out “fuck you!” to our President? Look no further than One Flew West’s latest EP, Trial and Error – a punchy, no-nonsense creation that isn’t afraid to say what many of us are already thinking. With commentary on our current state of affairs, as well as other themes including the impending doom of adulthood or being an antisocial home-body, the EP articulates everything one could feel being a young adult in America."

"Every generation needs a band to stoke its angsty screams. Right now, few do it better than One Flew West" 

- Dylan Owens, Denver Post | Link

“The tongue-in-cheek, intricate and undeniably honest delivery has drawn comparison to the likes of Say Anything and You, Me & Everyone We Know, with elements of The Format and even Frank Turner also coming to the fore.”

“The band’s lyrics were intoxicating to sing along to and ridiculously catchy. One Flew West’s choruses find their way into your head and almost force you to sing along. The rawness of their punk and folk influences, in addition to their pop tendencies, create lyrics that are not only fun to sing, but have emotional resonance. The complexities and interplay of their vocals kept interest throughout the entirety of the set and helped the lyrics take their full effect.”

- Joel Thompson, Rocky Mountain Collegian
