The two of you have captured such a special, incredibly moving and emotional moment. Feelings of heartbreak wrap around in the most beautiful and captivating way. This is my new favourite song, thank you.

Another emotional sonic fantasy that's intimate yet expansive, simultaneously capturing your ears and your heart.

Hard Yes. Please accept my four and half star rating instead of my words because whatever I have to say won't do it justice. However here goes nothin; The pace at which "Here's The Thing" travels along is the fabric of pop fantasy. EGOISM nail the Happy/Sad limbo that makes anyone with a soul stop, listen and love.

the e in egoism surely stands for emotional. from frustration, tenderness, confusion, trust and everything else in between, it's a ride that i was so invested in from my first listen. it's as good a sequel to 'you you' that we could hope for!

if The 1975 and Mallrat collaborated, they could only dream of crafting something half as tender and captivating as 'Here's The Thing'. speaking of dreams, that's exactly where I'll be hearing those pianos for the next forever.

You were one of the last bands I saw before lockdown, and this really hit me hard. Can't wait to see you pour your hearts out on stage again with this new one.

Olive, you in particular should be very proud of how you have not only exposed your heart so deeply, but the way in which that tender ache has been so beautifully conveyed throughout this piece. Just stunning!

Quick moment of reflection on the way that you've referenced You You so cleverly in this record at the 2:00 mark and the 2:20 mark. CLEVER.

EGOISM challenging Kelly Clarkson for the mantle of best song to kick off with an iconic utterance of "here's the thing". I'm glad they're back and messing with our hearts again.

If you think this sounds good recorded, when we're all out of COVID realness, go see EGOISM live.

Well, this is unbelievably pretty isn't it? The production and dreamy guitar textures are to die-for, then Scout and Olive's dovetailing vocals in the final minute just take it to a whole new level. People are already talking EGOISM, but this should be the one to get them shouting. "EGOISM EP WHEN!?"

There is something really special going on here. That main riff is a winner, but so are the vocal lines, and the atmosphere. So yeah, what you're doing is combining lots of strong elements into a winning recipe.

Dangerous to release one of the best songs of 2020 when it's just February. It's got that studied dream pop feel which is very you two. But then you drop in the bridge with Olive and the crunchier guitar and surprise me with this new side of you. So yeah, 'You You' was about right.

You're on a roll. Three from three over the last 12 months. You've saved the best to last too. Don't stop there though please.
