“Listening to Ahern's last two EPs it's clear he's really settled into a sound of his own, although influences like his beloved Clash or early Johnny Cash are evident. On the 2018 EP his working-class identity shines through on “What's Wrong" especially since its first line is "'What's wrong with a picket line..." and it is the kind of insistent rocker that allows no escape. The stark Americana of "On Our Own" is another portrayal of common folk.” - Jay Miller
