    Moaning establish their sound while dodging redundancy on their debut.

    Moaning is an undeniably powerful debut which sounds astonishingly mature and accomplished for a first effort.

    Though it is steeped in a subgenre that often can seem tapped out, Moaning is a strikingly accomplished debut.

    A blank regeneration. [Apr 2018, p112]

    The excellent "Misheard" and "Useless" swirl with a cathartic sense of rage and helplessness, but while it's effective, the entirety is a lot to take. [Apr 2018, p.30]

    If Moaning could unshackle their melodic sound and avoid building their walls of sound so high on their second record, they will be another certified gem in the Sub Pop crown.

    There is a lot of polish to Moaning, to the point that it’s carried off almost with a bit of a swagger.
