This is a gorgeous celebration of nostalgia and your favourite lived moments, proves when lyrics are very unique or personal from the artist it's somehow more so relatable to everyone. Bittersweet just like the human condition.

What a delight this song is. Reminds me of the songs I discovered while surfing LiveJournal and MySpace late at night in the early 2000s.

'I'm taking selfies with my Game Boy camera': It's going to be tough to find a 2020 lyric that hits with harder nostalgia than this. If Sufjan Stevens was an Aussie teen in the '90s, he'd maybe write something as great as this.

Someone get Richard Linklater on the blower! Obscura Hail putting on a masterclass of unraveling adolescent experiences in an accessible but always meaningful way.

if Declan's the cool kid who told me about this song, I'm the neighbour who immediately falls in love with said song and listens to it obsessively on the bus for the next six months.

hearing this i have a video playing in my head of manic scenes all around obscura hail and sure, the mayhem bleeds in a bit, but you can still hear and feel the beauty through it all.

So into this crunchier, heavier, growlier sound. The overlapping of voices at about 2:15 mins...woah! How on earth did you manage to pull that off this well?! Impressive, excellent, talented and super clever songwriting, that's how! Obscura Hail forever living up to their masterful reputation.

Would that we were all as talented as Obscura Hail's mastermind Sean. His acute songwriting vision means he can fashion a hook out of pretty much anything.

This song really pleased me. Can't wait to listen again. You take your influences and you build on them and that's what art is.

I'm on my 6th listen. Obscura Hail are experts in taking a fleeting feeling and creating a moment again and again.
