"As soon as it (White Sneakers) landed in my inbox I had a suspicion that they'll become a favourite of Aussie pop fans, and I think in time I'll be proven right."
Ben Madden - Cool Accidents
"...I am liking their infectious energy. They are perhaps the smiliest girl band I have heard about in years. It is this sense of sweetness about them, that is unfeigned and without pretence that endears me to them."

“Hey! is all about not wanting to mess up a good thing. As we were writing it we drew from not only romantic relationships but our friendship with each other. Ultimately the lyrics are all about faking it til you make it. It really came together once we finished the chorus, as we listened back we left the mic on and it captured us screaming the song together in the studio. It really captured the energy of the song and its message of enjoying the good thing while it’s happening.”
