Critical reception[edit]

Lewis Corner of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:

"It's just another night, the boys are getting hype/ But baby in my head, I'm there with you instead," T-Ray bluntly confesses over a clap-happy beat and smooth synths, before Amanda takes the reigns [sic] on a wibbly-lipped chorus that will grab your ears and refuse to let go. With a hook more seductive than a heartthrob vampire, we suspect Cover Drive will have the public under their charms once again. 4/5 stars.[2]
