"Focusing on the melodic lines of the single construction, Matt has delved into something old and made it just a pleasure to listen to. His crystal clear brook-like vocals assist in penetrating the vastness of the air-waves and tickles your pop sensibilities." - Come Here Floyd

“Lovely song, excellent performance... very promising" - Fresh On The Net

“On May 6th, Churchill released his first EP, Cause/Affect. The EP contains three songs, two of them included below, which demonstrate Churchill’s accomplishments as an acoustic folk musician and a songwriter.” - Indie Rock Café

“‘Of My Time’ too… It’s a moodier and thought provoking three minutes… it takes a few listens to really appreciate the detail.”  - Already Heard

"We don’t know very much about Churchill, but his new self-released double-single, “Radar” displays his fondness for a mix of styles, including acoustic, indie folk, and shoegaze, as evidenced by the title track and the B-side, “Not Enough Feet.”" - Indie Rock Cafe

"'‘Five Years’... encapsulates everything that is essentially Churchill’s signature style, which is a distinct folk sound with an edge that is less Turner-esque punk but charged with just as much raw energy." - Unsigned Britain
