“I Wanna Get Better,” the first single from Bleachers, features a sing-along-ready chorus with group vocals and optimistic lyrics.”

Los Angeles Times
“The pop-rock number…has all the anthemic qualities that fueled Fun’s big breakout: lyrical sentiment built around a catchy chorus, distorted guitar riffs, poppy synths and enough brassy beat to fill an arena.”


Rolling Stone
“…heavy-hitting pianos, pulsing percussion and grandiose vocals…”


Teen Vogue
“I Wanna Get Better” is a repeat-worthy indie-pop gem that has sunny summer vibes and a touch of punk-kid cool.”

“…ecstatic first taste”


Neon Gold
“Somehow that massive chorus feels like it belongs in the ’90s, the ’00s, now and tomorrow all at the same damn time, and if this isn’t sync gold for every young adult coming-of-age film this year (wonder if these guys know anyone at Girls?), then we don’t know what is.”


“Anthemic gem”
“Antonoff’s solo single is a colorful, stream of consciousness-like trip back to one of the best periods in pop music.”


Under The Gun
“I Wanna Get Better” is a righteous blast of eighties-inspired rock and roll, complete with upbeat lyrics and Antonoff’s signature guitar sound.”
