Taken me a few weeks to review this one but it's one that I keep returning to. Precisely done. Spot on.

Nick has some really nice qualities as a singer. There's a strong feel there in spite of it being quite mellow. Capturing a dreamy and hypnotic feel isn't all that easy, but he's managed to get pretty close on this one.

I'm hearing the Josh Pyke comparisons (the Boulet ones, less so), and I can see this going popular for the j's - but it's not for me, feels a little too calculated.
