"Breakfast Alone is a culmination of years honing in on a sound that merges country and gospel motifs, rooted in strong lyricism, a dash of subversion and the ability to praise honesty – through both personal and musical truths – above all else, draped in melodies that dance away the despair."
— Rolling Stone
"On their debut album, Little Bandit show that in country music, dry sarcasm and irony can go hand in hand with old-fashioned heartbreak."
— American Songwriter
"Alex Caress' own music recalls both Dolly Parton and Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields. It's highly evocative and slightly hilarious. In Little Bandit, he offers an openly queer perspective on classic country music and the themes of heartache, big dreams and drinking at the bar. "
