Stranger received a 9/10 rating from Exclaim! who commented, "Pollock never shies away from the unconventional. Yet, there's enough warmth, folk, pop and soul here to satisfy listeners of virtually any stripe.” In April 2018, a remix she made for Zola Jesus was released on as part of Okovi: Additions on Sacred Bones.
