"‘Don’t Need Me’ is all about vulnerability and authenticity, which Stumble Steady carries off with indie-pop flair. By the end of this track, we feel ready to take on the world." - Unrecorded
"Unless you hate infectious, hook-ridden indie pop songs, you should definitely check Stumble Steady‘s new EP, starting with Tired. It might have been inspired by how we all feel after one year of pandemic, but listening to this tune will actually inject you with enough energy to keep going throughout your day. Who doesn’t need that on a Monday?" - The Alternative Mixtapes
"‘Coming To An End’ takes you on a different melodic path with a driving strumming guitar. There is an observational feeling to this song that really shines on the verses. When the chorus hits, there is a change in the feeling as his voice is filled with a pleading. There is a serious message woven into this song that you should look out for. Through the catchy movements of the track, you are drawn into a consideration of a relationship and the emotions it brings." - The Other Side Reviews
