Critical Reception

NME describe Distance as 'forlorn Americana to rival The National', awarding the album 8/10.[1]

The Guardian call the album "a miniature masterpiece", giving it 4/5. [2]

The Line of Best Fit say that "Michaelson’s voice and his way with a sparse arrangement...(make) each song on Distance feel like the most sumptuous thing you’ve ever heard.", giving it 8/10. [3]

Uncut say: "This is soul music (as in “dark night of …”), but it comes in heavy disguise. The lyrical introversion is tough, but the delicate playing of the Coastguards adds drama and beauty. The overall effect is of emotional control in the face of great torment", giving it 8/10.[4]
