- "Tenement (Demo)" – 2:58
Chris Reynolds of Gigwise.com awarded the single 4.5/5 stars, calling the single "a new high" and "jerky, fast paced and exciting not to mention supremely catchy". Maps magazine was also enthusiastic, calling it "Two and a half minutes of furious foot tapping, radio-friendly brilliance with a skronky guitar breakdown and Xylophone chimes chucked in for good measure". John Sakamoto of the Toronto Star called it "the most exhilarating 2:22 of the week". Daniel Ross of Drowned in Sound, meanwhile, gave the single a 5/10 rating, opining that the band "sound in dire need of a few months in glorious isolation, somewhere where they can purge themselves of their flailing clutches at influences". Gareth K. Vile of The Skinny was also not impressed, and in his view the single lacked "much sincere urgency, originality or imagination".
