you three might have the secret recipe to a perfect indie song, but I love that you add a new ingredient to every tasty morsel you upload. it retains the catchy charm, but the pace and energy of this one sets it apart and keeps you on your toes.

STUMPS can't write a bad song! Bright indie energy that gets you straight on your feet and the charisma leaves you feeling so cool. Another great one to add to that live catalogue of yours.

Clean and wiry indie rock done so right by STUMPS. Skinny tie and skinny jeans mandatory.

You gotta be kidding me with this? It's almost TOO fun! It's sitting somewhere between INXS and Vampire Weekend. And I'm in there too bopping like mad.

Real hands in the air moments from STUMPS with a new one that channels tropicana and smiles in equal measure.

it's as though STUMPS filled a champagne bottle with str8 up joy and happiness, shook it up, popped the top, and let us enjoy the fizzy, bubbly sonic spray.

oh shiiiiiit this is gonna send your crowd into a frenzy. when festivals (hopefully) return in 2021, all you bookers better line up stumps to get the masses jumping around early. my only criticism is that 2:07 is way too brief, i want the extended mix!

It feels like STUMPS have captured a perfect and momentous moment here. One that's sincere, full of passion and one you'll be connecting to with moments from your own life. The build is expansive, it feels complete, wholesome and it stirs big emotions. The perfect opening to what's to come from STUMPS in 2020.

Heartfelt rock with a gorgeous build, I reckon this one sits very nicely on the shelf alongside GOY, City Calm Down and Johnny Hunter.

It has taken me a few days to figure out how I was going to articulate my words to express how unbelievably beautiful this track is, but unbelievable is the only way to describe how I feel about it. I truly have no words STUMPS, you step it up with every single release, and Mt. Pleasant has taken it to a whole other level. Kyle your voice is outstanding in this track, and how you carry it through start to finish is amazing. That build up to 3:28mins when the guitar and drums hit, GOOSEBUMPS! I keep playing that section over and over again, and brings tears to my eyes. Lyrically this track is stunning. Hands down my favourite release from you guys. Incredible stuff. Definitely one of my fav tracks so far of 2020.

Well you got me stumped! This song beautifully progresses to an anthemic second half, bringing in that Gang of Youths / Johnny Hunter energy

this is such an emotional and sudden sound shift for you guys! it has massive Bloc Party energy to it but you completely make it your own. the build up in this song had me tenser than any Netflix murder mystery drama.
