In December, the Boston Music Awards named The Low Anthem Best New Act and NPR recently named “To Ohio” Song of the Day. Bruce Warren of WXPN wrote the review saying, “At times languid and haunting, but with detours into Tom Waits-esque stomping and hollering, The Low Anthem's music seems equally informed by Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, The Band and a late-night ride home in Joni Mitchell's car. ‘To Ohio’ showcases the group's soft and tender side, but there's more to it than just sweet elegance. Like fellow new-acoustic greats — Fleet Foxes, Blitzen Trapper, et al — The Low Anthem has created something strange, beautiful and new.” (NPR)

Paste also featured the band in their December issue, calling Oh My God, Charlie Darwin “time-honored, and astonishingly innovative,” and saying the band is “always in lock-stop harmony, like a beautifully turned double play." (Paste Online, Paste)
