The single was met with airplay from BBC introducing and Kerrang! and appraisal from the NME's editor Matt Wilkinson, as well as a host of other muso judges, who selected the track as one of their top 10 picks in the prestigious 'Berwick Street Calling' competition. The second single followed in November 2016.
