February 2003 saw the release of the band's 2nd EP, 'Compliments & Criticism'. The CD was recorded and mixed in two days ending the bands first year together. It showed the bands artistic progression and added confidence, and was greeted by excellent reviews in the local press, selling over 500 copies locally and at gigs.
Interests and invitations soon followed and Overdrawn were headlining shows at The Borderline, The Garage, The Dublin Castle, The Barfly, The Cavern and many, many more.
Late in 2003, Overdrawn took time to regroup, rethink and reshape. As each individual's musicianship had improved the band began to adopt a tighter, more powerful sound, whilst maintaining an acoustic set which they play in certain venues. Two separate recording sessions early in 2004 caught this perfectly and have produced the bands best material to date. Including tracks like If So When So, See-Through, Active Radio, My Elixir and Better Than Him.
