"Highly perched on our list of most anticipated albums of 2015 is 'Hearts Bleed Goodbye' by Brooklyn band Typhoid Rosie...The album is a testament of love, a chronology of loss, and rather than teetering on overly maudlin sentimental drivel, tackles the grieving process with sonic wonderment and catchy melodies. The album's first two singles 'Better to Know Now' and 'Hearts Bleed Goodbye' are getting global praise for their raw emotion, not to mention their unrelenting catchiness...Typhoid Rosie have perfected making sad songs with pop hooks and indie grit"- Thirty Roses
"A beautiful expression of emotion that relies on Rebel's bleeding lyricism for the heavy hitting effect... a vulnerable and heartfelt track"--Baeble Music.
"Typhoid Rosie, rising like a phoenix straight outta Brooklyn, recalls a feistier rock & roll yesteryear when the likes of Joan Jett, Suzi Quatro and Kim Carnes ruled the charts instead of the typical sex kitten dinner theater we’ve been deluged with ever since a bored Britney Spears emerged from the classroom...If you’re into Blondie, Garbage or 90’s BritPop acts like Republica, Elastica or Echobelly, Typhoid Rosie should hit your sweet spot. Definitely a band to keep an eye on."- Popdose
"Typhoid Rosie is one of those kick ass bands you are not surprised come from Brooklyn...This band has so much great energy, and they have this huge sound; but over the huge sound comes the kick ass voice of Rosie Rebel herself. She reminds me of Joan Jett or Suzie Quatro, back when a woman with balls was not the norm. I love this band. "-- Audio Fuzz
"The listener is instantly hit hard with their intense and steady drums. The track goes on to showcase the band's signature sound. The song is only surpassed by its enjoyable lyrical imagery and symbolism"-- Eat Sleep Breathe Music
"'Better to Know Now' is the first single off the fall release 'Hearts Bleed Goodbye'. A song about addiction and the bad company we keep while buried in the bottom of a bottle or a needle...Rebel's lyrics are thought provoking and the music is catchy. It's reminiscent of what an 80's rock/punk band would create if they wanted a 50's vibe. Rebel is a cross between Blondie and Pat Benetar with a dash of activist"--WordKrapht.
Typhoid Rosie is a Brooklyn-based Indie Pop/Rock band with a lot of guts. Their unique style and moving music, push them beyond the confines of the Pop genre into a league of their own. As an avid music listener and friend-defined human jukebox, I can honestly say that this band’s music doesn’t remind me of anyone…and I love that--Livewells Latest
"A compelling female fronted quartet of extremely gifted musicians"-- Audio Fuzz
