“Following the release of their Bein’ Mean EP in 2014, Deep State continued to make the statement that guitar-driven riff rock is indeed alive and well. Deep State’s debut full-length, Nice, only solidified the band’s status as one of the best to emerge from Athens over the past few years, thanks largely to some sleeker production from Jesse Mangum. That doesn’t mean the record was without its endearing warts; the group retained its careful carelessness, blending pop with garage-rock in a way that wasn’t just infectious, but stunningly affecting.” – Dan Mistich, Flagpole Magazine
