King of Prussia falls in line nicely behind the '60s psych-worshiping Apples in Stereo and Of Montreal. Whether this means frontman Brandon Hanick will be cross-dressing in 10 years and crooning about paying girls to hit other girls is anyone's guess. But he and Kevin Barnes already have one thing in common: They each made one of the better records released this year.

Noah Bonaparte Pais, Magnet Magazine

Transmissions from the Grand Strand is pop music at its most sophisticated…Hanick foregoes any sappy choruses
or psychedelic flower power in favor of thoughtful, nuanced narratives. Even if love is often on his lips, Hanick's poetic phrasing is never trite.

Flagpole Magazine

Transmissions from the Grand Strand is an album that deserves to be heard by as many people as possible, for, when it’s strong, it is a potent distillation of pop from a bygone era that sounds very distinctly multi-continental. There’s a lot to take in with Transmissions, and multiple listens reveal different things, but the overall feeling is one of pleasantness.

PopMatters

How fantastically beautiful their brand of indie pop is. This album is more than worth your time.

What lies in the future for King of Prussia remains to be heard and seen, but the band’s first record is a masterpiece most artists spend years seeking and rarely touch. Smart, sensuous, and sincere….savor this breathtaking achievement.

Those with seasonal affective disorder (or really anyone who finds these colder months depressing), will find that a listen
to Save The Scene will work as well as sticking your head in a lightbox to up your serotonin production on a grey, snowy day.

The folks at the Roland Corporation, who manufacture and market the Boss BR-1180 Digital Recording Studio,
might want to consider buying up a few thousand copies of Save The Scene, the first album from the Athens, Georgia indie rock band King of Prussia, and hand them out to potential users of the BR-1180 as a show of what the gizmo can do in the right hands. 4 out of 5 stars.

All Music Guide

The album is a consistent pleasure. It’s the kind of album that creeps into one’s consciousness; eventually feeling so essential, one wonders how one lived, before, without it.
