Hope has charged this track with emotion and an endearingly messed up energy. Cos life can be a huge fkn mess sometimes.

it's a personal tale that just explodes and that cathartic break out around 2:30 is life giving.

Great to hear from you lady. I love the rawness you bring through that guitar and into your songwriting. It must be liberating to let it all out.

Hope's the sort of songwriter who cuts straight to the quick, writing songs that speak straight to the heart of a feeling. L.I is clothed in hurt and frustration which ripples in Hope's vocals.

fans of Thelma Plum's earlier works will fall in love with the same grounded charm this has in spades. won't be hard for you to find an adoring crowd with songs like this, Hope!

Your voice truly is something else, Hope, and when it's paired with such an interesting guitar line it's hard to not be swept up in this. Not only do you write emotionally-charged music, you perform it with such conviction that you make the listener feel what you're feeling. Love your work.
PS. That moment at 3:32 is glorious. More of that, thanks!

You've got to have one of the most unusual and emotional voices I've heard in a long time. Every word is packed with so much vulnerability and listening to this feels like an intimate conversation with a friend.

This is such an epic, grand scale for you Hope. I'm not sure if this was intentional with the title, or a pun associated with your name, but this track is just brimming with a glowing sense of hope, the kind you feel setting out for an early flight on a big holiday. This is tops, well done.

Super strong songwriting. Really solid musicality, a driving melody that doesn't require fussy production but has some sweet guitar groundwork in any case - really love it, Hope.

I can absolutely see why everyone is talking about Hope Wilkins and I'm kicking myself that I didn't jump onto this vibe before lockdown because witnessing this voice live would be nothing short of majestic! Can't wait for the rona to be over, I'll be throwing myself straight on a plane to Canberra for this gig!

A little alt-country shuffle with a nu-folk swing and a couple of cheeky Easter eggs via lifting the chorus medley of The Lumineers' "Ho Hey" and the hook of Damien Rice's "Rootless Tree." In that respect, "L.I." feels like a mosaic - it's made up of a lot of other artworks, but when you take a step back and look at it in its own right it's a be...

Utterly delightful song!
From the electric guitar lifting the second verse, followed by a warm sea of harmonies and into the final crescendo, this song builds wonderfully and takes the listener on such a moving journey that once it's over I can't repress the urge to hit play again!

It'll hit you in the feels so hard that you stumble and tear up, and then it'll pick you up and put you on your feet again. If you measure songs by their ability to evoke an emotional response, then this is for you.
