Took me a minute for this to finally cement for me but now i'm locked in this song's concrete and there's no hint of escape. Wonderful songwriting.

Had this stuck on repeat all week. There’s something really special in this. The impact it leaves is real and it’s beautiful. “How is it a sin, for just holding someone else’s hand”. Your words are powerful.

It's got that Tegan & Sara relatability with a bit more punch.

I'm so behind this. You're balancing so many contradictory emotions and it's REAL and RELATABLE. You've captured a hard-to-describe feeling of frustration, hurt, angst and strange, unexpected joyfulness.

Super impressive debut track from Hope D. The whole thing is bathed in this warm glow but underneath is this striking song about overcoming some severe pressures.

Hey, damn, this is great. Your production values are perfect. They give everything in the back a soft enough edge to let your words do the real talking and I love that. Although I have to say I love all the super lofty layers in there, too.

A lot going on but it's all really warm and well polished. I reckon this has made my afternoon.

I am completely and utterly obsessed with this. Swim has those Stella Donnelly/Carla Geneve/Alex the Astronaut vibes, but with a Tegan and Sara-esque upbeat pop edge. Clever lyrics, too - how do you convey so many emotions such a seemingly simplistic way?! I AM SO IN LOVE AHHHHHHH
