'Paranoia (A Nü Start),' gives us a chance — and, even the encouragement needed — to run away entirely. The escapist indie-folk anthem is upbeat and cheery, in a way that suggests that our protagonist doesn’t know what else to do but shrug off life’s pain and find a distraction, in short order. The tune’s slight, tasteful twang feeds this sense of adventure even further, while spirited vocal harmonies from vocalist Natasha Thweatt add another layer of shine.” - Gerard Longo
