James, you're onto something here. It's such an easy going vibe, I feel like I'm on one of those travelators they have at the airport but it's just taking me around the office.

That chorus is a winner! It's got this bounce and current that moves easy. Sign of good songwriting!

Yeah this is lovely. You've got songwriting in the blood but you've also made some good production choices and I can see why you're getting so many positive reviews on this song.
