"Excused stands for catchy poppy guitar that stick like peanut butter to the brain. ... The songs are musically well constructed and the many instrumental pieces and improvisations sound very well."
This is how 3voor12 (a famous Dutch pop magazine) described Excused after seeing the EP-presentation of Automobile: "the members of Excused find a successful balance between the sensitive ballads and more uptempo songs during their shows".
Excused performed in De Melkweg, opened for bands like Di-rect (very famous Dutch band) and Silkstone appeared many times in the 3FM studio (national Dutch radio station). Excused was nominated as 3FM Serious Talent and the title track Automobile was named song of the week on the American garageband.com: Truly a feel good piece...
