OOOFT. Does Hallie give songwriting lessons? I'd smash subscribe. The way this lets the breezier rock verses support her eloquent verses and melodies, then takes centre stage when her wise words recede = smart stuff.

"Always someone there, but we're trained to find reasons not to like them." Ay why you gotta read me like that in the first 10 seconds?

The build to that key change at the 2.40 mark was the icing on the cake for me.

Tbh I'm feeling this new Hallie track on a spiritual level.

Hooked on first listen. Can't deal with how good these melodies are - they'll be stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

So many bump worthy moments! That vocal soar at 1:26, that frenzied guitar a minute later...I'm basically looking like a raw plucked chook by the end!

This is a smash, Hallie. Vocals are so special. Storytelling is evocative. And the musical shell of it all is alive with this unmistakable energy and all round tightness. It feels really complete. Well done!

One of my favourite up and coming songwriting talents in the country I reckon. You are for me anyway. What a ripper this one is.

The tone and just how you sing is so exceptional and a favourite to listen to. It feels like a page taken out of your diary, but spiced up by 10000000.
5 minutes of pure love for this and your stunning songwriting. Absolutely gorgeous.

having seen hallie's voice live i can confirm it's a beast that can do all the tricks and 'stuck in mud' is another beauty to show it off.

Five minutes long and across that duration I kept thinking that I’d heard the songs climactic moment only for you to take things up another notch. Your live show put that vocal front and center but it’s great to have a song that backs up just how good that voice is. Mighty.

Thought your voice was going to be the thing that bowled me over but those guitars are doing an equally good job. Bright little chimes that hang over it all but damn, this is a heck of a song.

Here to support Bryce and continue the chain of names starting with B. But also here to tell you this is a real charmer. You and Asha Jefferies would be a dream team.

I've really loved this song! So fun to sing along to. Love that melody at the end of the chorus that you carry into the guitar.

I've never yelled 'OH SHIT' during a song as loud as when I did on that huge note at 2:37! The big notes throughout the song come out of nowhere and they are PERFECT! I love how this builds and I love the lyrics and I love the rawness of your vocals and I love EVERYTHING about this. Catch me never stopping talking about this. SO! DANG! GOOD!
