Under The Radar writes that iogi‘s new LP we can be friends “occupies a similarly warm and dreamy space, full of lush sonics and a gentle, early-morning beauty… ‘6am’ effortlessly encapsulates the record’s aforementioned early-morning energy, steeping iogi’s songwriting in both quiet intimacy and lingering melancholy. The track is primarily guided by meditative keys, though as the song winds onward iogi also works in winding guitars and simmering orchestral elements. Meanwhile, iogi’s voice floats along above the instrumentation, drifting unmoored into woeful meditations and hopeful dreams. The track’s lyrics bring out the longing and lonely side to the song, but simultaneously, the gentle light of hope never is far out of reach. iogi unites both sides of the track in a heartfelt golden luster, balancing the low points with a sincere empathy.”
