Tram7 was one of the music blogs that wrote about the single.

When describing the album, Swedish entertainment monthlies Nöjesguiden and Gaffa referenced youth, decadence and broken hearts, while Sundsvalls Tidning called it “a massive phase error”.

During the winter and spring of 2011-2012, First Love, Last Rites recorded the follow-up album "Wasted hearts" and released the single "Walk you home." The media coverage in Sweden included rotation on indie radio station Gimme indie, as well as in England on the blog Jajajamusic.[8] The single from the album, "Charlot", was released in 2012. The accompanying music video premiered on PSL, a music blog hosted by the Swedish public television company SVT on November 12.

“Wasted hearts” was reviewed in Sweden’s largest morning newspaper Dagens Nyheter on December 5. The reviewer stated, "Wasted Hearts sounds great. Rather wonderful, actually. Best track:" Walk you home '".

The band signed to Heist Or Hit Records on March 8, 2013.
