This song's been running laps through my head. It's catchy, but it's also smart as hell songwriting. It makes me think of that observation about Frank Ocean's 'Pyramids' how if you write out the notation, the hooks are actually pyramid-shaped. I can hear those circles, that back and forth on the page in the same way. It's really brilliant.

This might be a debut single, but it's clearly the work of someone who's been at the songwriting game for a while and knows her strengths. I hear shades of Maggie Rogers, Sylvan Esso, Vera Blue aka. all the good stuff.

Plenty to like in this track. Love how it plays off that percussive rhythm. Fans of Maggie Rogers will find something here for sure.

izzy moore said i gotta listen to this one and she wasn't wrong. it's tender folk twisted, moulded and energised for 2k19. it also stands out without jumping in front of everyone and shouting at the top of your lungs.

It's a huge leap into Unearthed High with this debut from George Alice. It's rich with colour, layers and emotion and I can't wait to hear more from her.

Layers and layers and layers of vocals moving atop each other like waves on waves. This song is like a cake you bite into only to discover that there's various fillings on the inside disguised by the colourful icing and right now I'm shoveling it into my face.

You know it's a good pop song when the prechorus is by itself strong enough to be the chorus. Also, "you've been engraved into my concrete mind," good thanks.

Can't claim it as an original comparison since George Alice has said it herself on her UE page but yeah I do totally hear the brooding electronic touches of Sylvan Esso meets the pure voiced emotion of Julia Jacklin. That kind of a combination is liquid gold to my ears.

Just coming back to this. Have had it on repeat for a lot of the day and it’s a huge mood. It feels current and I love that vocal play in the back. It breaks it up, giving it this mystery and atmosphere...The more I listen to this, the more it stands right out to me. From those stripped back demos last year, to this! What an exciting journey watching you. I love the brooding bounce in the pro...

The control and balance in your voice is grounding.

This is sick. Bit of an electro-folk vibe but with some brooding pop elements. Strong debut, keen to hear where you take this sound.

What a treat. This spins and twists and turns and leaps all over the place, like a big gust of air has just swept it up and sent it away.

Who gave you the right to write a track this good?! This is so dang catchy! And your voice is gorgeous! Very cool Vera Blue x Julia Jacklin vibes.

I'm dizzily in love with this track! I particularly like how you reflect the title of the track both lyrically and sonically- it's almost like those backing vocals are doing pirouettes through my headphones! Each time I listen to this track, I pick up on something else that just adds to the overall listening experience. Absolutely stunning

WOAH. ALL THOSE LAYERS OF VOCALS. They all just fit so well together. Synergy to the max.
I love that the first theme/melody is carried throughout the whole song. The prechorus is brilliant, it really captures the meaning of "going round in circles," that repetition in both the melody and backing work so well.

Ooft, a very very strong debut here! Sleek, broody and wow.... your voice! Before anyone else says it, there is a tinge of Billie Eilish to your voice too!

I've heard a lot of buzz around this one and after finally listening to it - I'm not one bit disappointed. It's like you've taken the darkest parts of Banks' music but balanced them with a beautiful softness in your lyrics and delivery. This is a knock out song that confirms the future of Aussie pop is in extremely good hands. I STAN!
