Lo Moon burns this soft glow, like the embers of a flame on the precipice of dying out. It’s awash in cool, electronic beats and refreshing waves of synth, but its heart – rooted unflinchingly in rock – refuses to be suffocated, letting a single flame slip through the cracks every few minutes to remind us that there’s an earthy substance beneath all of its elaborate posturing.

Exclaim!

The atmosphere of Lo Moon, which melds gloom with instrumental experimentation and a welcome pop sensibility, has gifted listeners with a record that stands apart. It's got a glow all its own.

AllMusic

Melancholy atmospheres and hook-laden vocal harmonies are just part of Lo Moon's game, which they deliver flawlessly on their debut.

DIY

‘Lo Moon’ is a daring and complex debut album scored through with emotional tumult and a nuanced understanding of the groups that have inspired them.

65
Northern Transmissions

Though their slow-burning writing may give many something to latch onto, the lack of a standout identity leaves the album missing something.

60
Clash

Sadly his talent for building epic, emotive crescendos does not overshadow his shortcomings as a lyricist.

Pitchfork
Take the sophistication out of sophisti-pop, and Lo Moon is just another L.A. indie R&B act who tries to bring us a higher love but can’t take things much further beyond bed and bath.

Lo Moon's self titled album is a perfect example of something that is already done, you heard it before but still has a thing that enchants in every note played. And this is for now, satisfactory.
