In the words of Clash Magazine:
'SCAR' could be his most succinct, incisive release yet. The single is blessed with a divine chorus, the digital production interweaving, creating something highly personal but also future-facing. There's more than a hint of Miami glamour filtered through the lens of a certain cinematic auteur
