GigApe.com Review Our Krypton Son's 'Plutonium'

VenueOne.com Review OKS's 'Plutonium'

"A more introspective and bare form than previous single 'Catalonian Love Song', here he calls to mind the best of Blur’s sparse 'Out Of Time Eels' more poignant moments. Like those acts OKS cannot but help his pop instincts and this is a a well-crafted, fully realised song."
