"A whispery blot of distorted guitar sits in the back of the track like refrigerator hum, which Pollie harmonizes wordlessly, giving a few extra layers to the song. This is bedroom-pop, for sure, emerging from the teeming netherworld of four-track recordings and small-press tapes. You can hear the ghosted smudges of previous tracks haunting the edges like bad memories." - Jayson Greene, Pitchfork

"She Came Through (Again)” is our first taste from that album...It’s amazing what the song accomplishes with so little, conveying more through atmosphere than its repetitive, bare-bones lyrics. You can feel the emotion in Pollie’s inflection and that can do more than words ever could. It’s a simultaneously comforting and gloomy track, heavy and light in all the right places." - James Rettig, Stereogum

"Despite the goofy name, the self-titled debut album of Ryan Pollie’s solo bedroom project-turned-band Los Angeles Police Department demands to be taken seriously...Pollie admits the songs of Los Angeles Police Department are mostly, and simply enough, about a certain girl, and though they aren’t likely to inspire more than casual empathy, Pollie’s lyrics are always in service to the music" - Philip Cosores


"The chorus hums and swirls, and when those guitars start crunching together with the drums, the room shakes with, “She came through again!” A wonderful introduction to the band’s forthcoming record. It’s earnest, and it’s sincere, though longing just the same. It’s quiet, but it snatches you up by the jaw." - Jeanette Wall, Portals

"Like the rest of their album, “She Came Through (Again)” is delicate and sweet, with its lightly tapped drums, airy vocals, and sleigh bells, but what it lacks in menace and willingness to shoot at suspects with reckless abandon, it more than makes up for in solid pop sensibilities." - John Ambrosio, IMPOSE Magazine

"“She Came Through (Again)” is the first track, recorded by Pollie in his bedroom and mastered by Warren Hildebrand. The title says it all. Sometimes you slip up, and in the best of sometimes you still squeeze by. I let her down/ I was wrong/ …But she came through again." - Duncan Cooper, The Fader

"Do not miss this subtle, sexy single from Ryan Pollie." - Yvynyl

"A contrast of sentiments; happy and sad, dignified and reckless, delivered by a voice that only ever felt like it was being spoken to you, for you, by you, whatever. Fleeting and memorable, Ryan Pollie writes songs that feel like memories; sometimes distant, sometimes lost in a haze, but always there, somewhere." - Tom Johnson, GoldFlakePaint

"Checking out “She Came Through (Again)”, the lead single from Ryan Pollie’s forthcoming debut as Los Angeles Police Department, stirs weird feelings of a random summer’s day when I was about eleven years old. I sat beneath some oaks in the front yard with my mother and my cousin, wearing a baggy shirt so long it might have passed for a night gown were I female. I remember it because there was a picture of it, somewhere, long lost no doubt. “She Came Through (Again)” sparks those memory synapses, though, a gentle tune to recollect a bittersweet day with my wonderful mother who always came, even nearing her final days." - Guilty Feet

"Whether it’s by virtue of finding himself as an artist or a conscientious shifting of style, Los Angeles Police Department’s tone has gotten a little softer lately. Some would indict an artist for that, but I find it rather intriguing. Ryan Pollie’s newest piece “She Came Through (Again)” is peaceful, sauntering along and soothing your ears while shining a light on those who’ve came through (for you) again and again.In our 24/7 culture we are quick to criticize and fearful to recognize others. Pollie’s two minute track takes care of the former with a subtly catchy, oft-repeated refrain." - Jason Harrison, Sirens of Decay

"She Came Through (Again) is deceptively simple in its presentation. Strumming patterns are straight forward and the vocal melody immediately feels familiar and welcoming. What this track does pack is a strong feeling of intimacy, both in its instrumentation and vocal delivery. It almost feels like you’ve known Ryan all your life and he’s telling you a story here. The verses on this track are short and sweet but they fit the format of the song fantastically." - Rafael, Heart and Soul
