Reviewing for The Times in January 2018, Will Hodgkinson said “this album has excitement and confidence fizzing out of every song, the spirit of punk-rock defiance given an energy shot for a new generation.” Eve Barlow of Pitchfork proclaimed, “the UK rock group separates themselves from their peers, imbuing their post-adolescent rage with wit and, crucially, a self-effacing awareness that they may never succeed.” In Mojo, Martin Aston called Songs of Praise an “incendiary debut” from a band who are “a visceral, frayed, clanging racket but still mindful of tunes”.
