"With intuitive powers of clarity and concision to the fore, Calm Down is an album that draws on 1960s pop and modern DIY heroes for a set of lovingly languid, lo-fi miniatures. Depths of detail and lived experience bustle beneath effortlessly melodic surfaces; sure signs of a writer in confident command of his pitch."
"Following his 2016 Bandcamp EP, Patch Me Up, Calm Down opens with its title track – a hazy blur of chugging, lo-fi guitars straight off Grandaddy’s Under The Western Freeway, and Plastic Ono Band-era inspired melodies: ‘I tried to see the milky way… I need a better place to hide away, you have to show me how to stay up late.’ And it’s this blend of understated, Beatles-esque, stargazing moments that makes this album of miniatures so special." - Secret Meeting
