In its track premiere, Stereogum writes, “Like so many of McCaughan’s songs, it feels instantly familiar, like something you’ve been happy to have in your life for years.”
McCaughan uses Non-Believers to explore his attraction to that early-’80s era of music when punk evolved into something more introspective, focusing on themes of isolation and eventually turning into post-punk and new wave. The record is about a fascination with art that could only be made by someone far from where you are, but who maybe shares the frustrations and awkwardness of youth. It’s about “the irony that comes with being 16 and having a car but not knowing where to go in it, or having a keyboard or a guitar and not knowing how to play it.”
