Critical reception

Nick Levine of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:

We Brits have been surprisingly sniffy when it comes to homegrown pop-punk girlies - just ask everyone from Love Bites to Alex Roots - but 16-year-old Daisy Coburn could be the one to eradicate the collective sneer. She's blonde and photogenic, blessed with plenty of 'tude and has even bagged a Chipmunk cameo for her debut single. Well, what are labelmates there for, eh?

Best of all, the single itself is a bit of a blast. Inspired by adolescent squabbles with Daisy's "really neurotic" sister, 'Number One Enemy' is a synthy little pop-punk ditty with nearly as much fizz as a Mento dropped in a bottle of Coke (if you haven't tried it, do). "Take off, take off, Daisy's about to take off," Chipmunk predicts around two-thirds through. When the big catchy chorus hits, you won't find it hard to agree.[2]

Music video

A music video is available for the song.[3] The video features Daisy dancing around a colourfully decorated garden, and later features her dancing around a decorated stairwell. During his verse, Chipmunk is seen sat at a long wooden table, in which Daisy is stood dancing behind him. Various odd objects appear throughout the video, although notable a giant cupcake and rainbow coloured sheep. The video seems to be inspired in parts by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, as seen by Daisy holding a pig, the long table (reminiscent of the tea party table) and Chipmunk holding a hat similar to the Mad Hatter's. We also see Daisy encountering a white rabbit and following it down a rabbit hole at the start, a small bottle reading "Drink Me", signs saying "This Way" and "That Way", a small house (reminiscent of when Alice grows larger whilst inside the White Rabbit's house) and oversized or just plain out-of-the-ordinary objects and surroundings.
