"Glimpses of Stevie Nicks and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals are sprinkled about this band, with its fiery vocal punches and sultry guitar licks."
- Here & Now Media
"SOMEWHERE BETWEEN CAUTIOUS FOLK ROCK AND SPACEY AMERICANA SOUNDS THAT GLIDE WITH BEAUTIFUL TURBULENCE."
- THE DAILY VAULT
“Temple Canyon is the best band in Seattle right now, so it’s especially joyful to watch their rising imminence. Mariko Ruhle’s voice stings the air when she sings, and her band compliments it with shoegaze builds and psych rock crescendos. Their 2016 album and 2017 EP sulk as much as they soar. The band swings moods wildly from glitter and glisten to rust and rattle in a beat. "

“Mariko’s rich and vibrant vocals conjure up favorable comparisons to the Wilson sisters and Stevie Nicks. She winds through the song, at times more delicate and reflective, but mostly emotive and powerful … supported by a woven web of sharp guitar lines that tangle with and slide away from her exclamations, a shadowy bass line, steady, echoed drum pummel, and sporadic cymbals hits.”
–The Big Takeover Magazine
“Mariko’s voice makes you feel things.”
“From the big drums to the strummy/stabby guitar interplay to the woozy keyboard lines, it’s hard not to hear some of the best elements of ’80s alternative pop at play here."

"Heavy, but utterly transcendent anthems of adventure and discovery."
- Chris Estey - Big Freak Media // KEXP 90.3 FM // XO Publicity
"Constant juxtaposing of darkest and lightest feelings and experiences, sonically going as far as possible from one polarity to the other. You thought you were listening to Heart, but then all of a sudden it’s sounding more like The Gits."
