'hold' is more proof that mane rarely missteps with her captivating voice and serious pop smarts.

That deep richness in your voice is unreal, Mane. You feel strong and ready to unleash emotion and that chorus is SO good. Congrats on the new EP lady!

Don't know if you could tell from the reviews but this one's all about That. Voice. There's some epic production that kind of competes but this is clearly the work of a strong writer. Not quite what I was expecting after Chasing Butterflies, but that's a good thing.

Takes a while to kick in, but once it does, it's worth the wait. That voice is a great instrument - big and moody as f**k.

in a lot of ways this knocks it out of the park. Powerful vocal, epic production and big emotional themes in the lyrics. Turning everything to 10 means it's hard to find ways to inject a little more nuance though and that's the only thing holding back a fifth star for me.

There's so much strength in your work. Big song, big moments, huge, deep and silky vocals too. It lands beautifully. It sounded great last night on jjj for the prem. Also - your Bigsound performance was unreal.

Love that opening chord. From there, it only gets better. Great vocal, really seductive playing and sounds dropping in and out, and the song manages to be both dark and uplifting. Not an easy combo to pull off. Nice work.

Now you're hitting it. This is winding, woozy pop and your voice grounds it perfectly.

Like always, your voice carries this all the way through. I can't get enough of it! Album! Album! Album! (soon please). It's serious and confident. I love the strings that come in and out. It's beautiful. Thank you x

chasing butterflys gives me this image of running through a field of tall hay with dappled sunlight and smiles aplenty. this though has confidence, style, direction and your voice is a standout. no fluffing about in the field to this one.

SHE BACK. Voice like a great whiskey, smooth but with an afterbite. The concluding climax feels made for concert halls rather than festivals, intelligent and emotive.

That voice! It's super powerful and convincing. I like how you've mixed up the track with this one, it's a little more playful than WITLD - it's got me swinging.

This just chants reverb in amphitheatres! It's so graceful with the vocals and pinches beautifully with the harmonies, while the production aligned with the chorus lyrics are so heartfelt. I'm rain dancing to the choruses and definitely feeling some Gordi vibes. Definitely a rock solid track that glows nicely amongst the electronic, indie pop genre!

perfectly constructed. the chorus is so immediate, the way the second verse weaves in new elements. it also makes me picture the elvish boy wearing that knitted beanie in About A Boy.

This song reminds me of moonlight and silk and the word 'luscious.' All sophisticated and luxurious.
