Departures EP

1. Empty beds 2. Talk me down 3. Let’s start over 4. Postcard from Boston 5. Two blue lights

Entertainment Weekly – It’s pure orchestral indie rock with heart

Pitchfork – 7.6, Bragg’s songwriting has grown more acute since his debut, but more impressive is the development of his sound.

All Music Guide – 4 out of 5 stars

Paste – Singing about loneliness and loss without coming off as mopey takes a delicate balance of reflection and resilience, and D.C’.s Meredith Bragg has it. In a voice that falls somewhere between Elliott Smith and Ben Gibbard, Bragg whispers grown-up breakup lyrics (“what will I do for Christmas?”) over strikingly vulnerable arrangements.
