  3. 8.0 |   Northern Transmission

    Creatively free, assured but vulnerable, poppy yet innovative; we should all take a leaf out of The Big Moon’s book and starting walking like they do.

  4. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    The indie quartet are in a bright mood, though Juliette Jackson can be devastatingly sharp on the disappointments of contemporary womanhood

  5. 8.0 |   Q

    More expansive, darker and that much more intriguing. Print edition only

  6. 8.0 |   music OMH

    Releasing the first high profile album in a new decade brings with it a sense of responsibility. The Big Moon thrive on this, setting out a positive stall as they pick up the baton for what we hope will be a strong year in British pop. The ’20s are off to good start

  7. 8.0 |   Clash

    The Big Moon are constantly breathing new life into a genre which sometimes runs stale. For that we should be eternally grateful

  11. 7.0 |   God Is In The TV

    The Big Moon have stuck to their guns and not followed a path well-trodden but taken all their influences and laid them out without worrying about what they’ve done before or what is expected of them

  12. 7.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Overall Walking Like We Do signals a band growing up, having fun, and developing their sound

  13. 6.8 |   Pitchfork

    The UK quartet pairs glowing synth pads and layered harmonies with a distinctly millennial approach to the possibility of total annihilation

  14. 6.0 |   Gigwise

    A bold leap that falls short
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   The Observer

    No one could ever mistake this band for sonic outliers, even when they hit their distortion pedals, but Walking Like We Do sets the Big Moon up for much bigger, more mainstream things
