SPIN calls the song “a beautiful slack-pop nugget that sinks its hooks in deeply” and Brooklyn Vegan calls Infinity Caller “their best batch of songs yet, with big choruses and plenty of the guitar squall the band were initially known for.”
Grooms features OU graduates Travis Johnson and Emily Ambruso. While based in Norman, the band was known as The Muggabears.
