“L D R U has slammed a comfortably cool interpretation that has plenty of pitchy-ness to the vocals, cool drums and kicks as creating cool pre southern hemispere summer vibes.” - Stoney Roads

“L D R U drops one hell of a mix of Lorde and her track ‘Love Club’.  This track is mighty fine and the remix is what we’ve been waiting for.  Gold!” - Your Music Radar

“…Sydney-native L D R U tones the track down to a groovin’ head-bobbing lullaby, with a simple soaring chord progression propelling the 16 year-old’s vocals to a near ‘let go of your handlebars and backflip off your bicycle’ sort of level.” - Salacious Sound

“By swelling breezy synths around Lorde’s heavenly vocals, L D R U builds on the original by giving it a summery new look.” - Hilly Dilly
