''I absolutely and utterly love this track, if you haven’t heard it head on to wherever you stream your music from & listen to the new single now.'' - Verity Oliver, SG1 Radio (Emo & Alternative Hour)

‘’An enjoyable listen, sounds really clean & polished, great mix, radio ready - I could definitely pitch that on Radio 1. The drums were punchy, the riffs were bouncy & groove, the vocals are huge. They gave me like Freddie Mercury vibes with these huge theatrical vocals. The song itself is kinda like the bastard son is Queen & Feeder.'' - MCD / WCR - Chewsday Show

"Immediately grabbed and pulled into this. This is a song that just keeps building and building, making it a perfect introduction to Blockade. The breakdowns really add to the journey you go on here. Class!”  - Seb Bailey / Somer Valley Radio

‘’Weaving in indie accessibility, an almost Brit-pop anthemic vibe (not the Brit-pop we got, but the one that we deserved), and lashings of pop infectiousness, they remind us that rock music might still be fit for purpose’’ - Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture

'Better Off Without is designed to be an instant crowd-pleaser, featuring a memorable chorus that can be sung live within seconds of hearing it.

'The track captures a classic alt-rock feel without missing the chance to add an empowering message.'

It's a rock song with the catchiness of a pop song and is packed with energy and soul.
