Sound bending, genre shifting, expectation defying - it's all another day in the life of this subversive pop collective.

No mistaking the influence of Lizzo on this single from Juno - the sass, the vocal, the structure is all from that super fun blueprint. I'm focusing on the super fun part, cos most importantly that's what this is.

Such a lovely mood here, mikk. All the elements are well put together and when you add that voice in to the mix it's all super luxurious.

This comes together pretty nicely with a rev'd up dance rock vibe. Loud guitars, louder energy - it works for BLKBLT.

Eli leaves nothing left unsaid with this latest rousing track. Listen to him go for broke on the delivery and just try not to be convinced.

I suppose it's gorgeously simple in parts - pair a floating vocal with some sensory pads - but it still feels like a blessing from Alice to my ears.

I'm now paying more attention to Mary Valley and their chirpy brand of indie pop. This one's got a convertible-ready breeziness to it like if Haim were road tripping through the desert.
