"We're warning you now: You might fall in love with someone in the room during this band's set. So genuine, so commanding, so deceptively simple is TFNH's music that, before you know it, something inside you has shifted - suddenly your staring into someone else's eyes from across the bar." -Folio Weekly
“Brooklyn band This Frontier Needs Heroes play this lovely track entitled "George Clooney," at Fusion headquarters in Miami. "George Clooney" - the song - is about the universality of loneliness, because, yes, even George Clooney - the actor and renown humanitarian - gets lonely.” -Fusion TV
“[They] spangle heartfelt Americana with psychedelic brightness and lyrical levity.” - SPIN
“Retaining their folk-intoned roots while expanding in terms of geography, personnel, and as evinced by the title track’s official video, a heightened cinematic quality.” STEREOGUM
