Your list of influences really intrigued me, and this track feels like the work of an artist with vision. Love the snippets and samples that add texture to the emotive heart of the song. And y'all did everything yourself!? Wowza.

The lyrics and vocal are what draw you in immediately. But the production and arrangement of this is really clever and shows you've got a great ear for that stuff as well.

I love the blink-and-you'll-miss-it sounds you've sprinkled throughout this. There's something new to discover with each listen.

it could have easily ramped up at a few points but nick's power lies in the restraint and the delicacy on this one.

Nick draws you in and it's impossible to escape it. Very clever, drawn out and expansive. Love all the elements and the emotional power you've poured out. It's absolutely gorgeous. Those strings, sparkly lullaby like sounds near the end broke me. It made everything stand still.

Nick dishing out the magic dust for this track. Hypnotic mix of lush production and vulnerability. Genuine bumps from this.

The way you use the space in the mix is so clever, between words and guitar parts so that when you fill it with warm synth beds at the songs end it's all impact.

This is a mood, alright. Feels super natural like you're in the room with Nick Ward. And you can't fake that feeling either. Many try but you've got it right. Keep showing your music, it's good.

Little production flourishes like the twist of a spanner or a an released breathe make this bedroom bop feel super intimate

This track is just divine! It's powerful not only lyrically but production-wise too. I love the way that you have used those snippets and samples to emphasise those emotions that are embedded deep in your words. It's glistening and my eyes are watering *sad slow claps along to the song*

This grabbed me from the second I heard those layered vocals at the beginning and kept me with your striking song writing ("he's not a man/he's the antonym"). Everything about this is so careful and refined and it just keeps getting better with every listen. Don't mind me being just a liiiiitle blown away by Nick Ward over here.

Love the old voice sample at 2:25 - It's these little production touches that really make this such a great track!
