Perez Hilton's reaction[edit]

Perez Hilton, the famous American celebrity blogger gave a positive review for San Francisco on his blogsite:

"We are LOVING loving LOVING this band called the KOLIN - from Hungary.

Yes, Hungary! They sing in English, though. So you'll be able to understand what they're saying. We've never mention a band from Hungary before, and we are thrilled to pop our cherry with the KOLIN. If you like sweet, sexy, dirty, garage, disconess, then you will love the band!

Think Scissor Sisters meets The Gossip. We think the Bay Area has a new anthem!!!"
