"Subrizi’s music [...] often feels like a current update of early, lo-fi Mountain Goats albums. Subrizi’s vocal rhythms sometimes align with [John] Darnielle’s free-flow, conversational style, although the lyrical content is often more urgent and political.
"This is especially true of Nails, which features some of Subrizi’s sharpest lyricism yet. The EP is brimming with pointed takes on the current political crises and the threat of an onset apocalypse as well as more human and personal reflections on growth, personality and gender."
"Subrizi may be an extremely endearing performer, one whose voice exudes an upbeat charm even when the song itself is descending into bleakness, but that doesn’t make this a cheery album.
"But still, Subrizi handles it with such verve that you can’t help but be a little fooled, and even if you see through the act, the songs are so snack-worthy that you can’t help going back for more."
