Here’s what some of the critics have been saying…
"Lush melodies and orchestral arrangements blend with americana, indie rock and pop to make the debut EP a standout for all five tracks."
D A W N S has created a thought-provoking and important work in both song and video, and we highly suggest you check both out."
“ethereal, layered and deeply nuanced... When all is said and done, Dawns signals the start of one of the Northwest's most promising new talents.”
- Absolute Punk
"They stomp through the song, sounding like a more melody-oriented Arcade Fire with better songwriting and a singer whose voice doesn't grate on me... Plenty of shade and light on this record; if it's a teaser to a forthcoming long-player, I'm all ears."
- Muso Scribe Review of 'So Help Me God'
