Slow Club have always reinvented themselves with each album, and this is another example of the talent of one of this country’s best kept musical secrets.

Loud and Quiet

The two differing styles should clash, but instead each complements the other beautifully.


Where the more overt hooks are missing, they're replaced with an amicable atmosphere, albeit one that risks sounding defeated in places.


Despite this album being a great crash course in modern folk-pop ... Slow Club doesn’t take many risks. They stay within their comfort zone, writing melodic, jangly indie songs.

Under The Radar

With many tracks played live in the studio with the Spacebomb crew, the result is a warm, inviting collection that showcases Slow Club's chemistry while drawing their strengths to the fore.


Slow Club present these songs in easy listening costumes, but below the surface, One Day is seething with disconnect and sorrow.

The Line of Best Fit

Whilst this never seemed like the obvious next step for Slow Club, it’s one they’ve taken with verve and assurance.

Drowned in Sound

It’s never showy, it’s never flashy, but by completely embracing the blues and country at their core, it’s always as good as Slow Club have ever been.

The Skinny

ODAOTWMA will do little to challenge the Sheffield band's twee reputation, but the record crosses genres with far greater experimentation than they're known for.

The Guardian

After their last album set out some lofty ambitions, this one feels like a creative plateau.


Steeped in decade-spanning traditions of pop, rock and folk, it’s an ambitious record marred only by early and apparent nonchalance.
