Madelyn Tait from The Music AU said "Each song adheres to the tried and tested formula of relatable lyrics, gentle vocals, catchy melodies and simplistic processed beats that has already proved successful for Shark with "Adore" and "Weekends". The appeal of Night Thinker... lies in its strong lyricism and simple production. It's more of the same from Shark, but it works."[2]

Ben Grubb from Project U described the EP as "soothing, full of soul, and uplifting (at times)."[3] Sputnik Music described the EP as an "intoxicating 20 minutes".[4]
