"The chemistry between Proffit and Duterte is perfectly natural, and “Nothing’s Changed” is as cozy and easygoing as an indie rock song can be." - Pitchfork

"“Nothing’s Changed” shows off a lo-fi indie-pop twang with Elliott Smith-indebted undertones." - Stereogum

"“Nothing’s Changed” is a folky, acoustic indie-rock track with playful jangle-pop guitars and an unexpected, triumphant trumpet solo to close." - Paste

"...the sweet Big Star power-pop melody of Justus Proffit and a soul-crushing trumpet solo and you have ‘Nothing’s Changed.’ It’s familiar, not derivative-sounding, and oh so soft." - Jezebel

"The song is peppered with touches of laid-back melancholy reminiscent of Elliott Smith, and it closes with an unexpectedly jaunty horn passage that leaves a lasting impression." - Brooklyn Vegan

"The EP blends Proffit’s Elliot Smith meets Alex G-style of songwriting with Duterte’s introspective indie and adds a dash of twang." - KEXP

"The duo's chemistry has yielded a shadowy darkness on 'Invisible Friends', where the gloopy bass keeps the track in a self-reflective mire that matches the contemplative lyrics." - The 405

"...'Invisible Friends' finds them basking in waves of fuzz and swanky bass grooves that sound like the good old days of arena rock." - Paste
