MY FAVE TJS SONG!! Punchy drums and crunchy guitar, plus attitude-filled lead vox and lovely harmonies, AND a line for punters to scream out at a live show - literally, what else could you ask for in a song?! Absolute ripper stuff, ladies.

Oh my GOD so this song plays at my work (H&M) and I have been trying to work out what it is for ages. I am SO GLAD I have finally found YOU

This is played very competently, there isn't a foot out of place and it's one of the most concise, tidy rock songs I've heard in a while... so why is it that I feel next to nothing when I hear this? There's no urgency here, there's no grand statement to be made with the lyrics and the execution ultimately feels unremarkable. This is a sandwich with the crusts cut off - ...

There's no urgency here, there's no grand statement to be made with the lyrics and the execution ultimately feels unremarkable. This is a sandwich with the crusts cut off - the taste is still there, but it feels entirely too safe.

Yeah, this is fucking COOL man. Stevie's got some sass on her, that snare has some serious crack to it and I can feel that bass-line in my chest. This one gets downright mean at points, and that's exactly the kind of vibe that you want. Roots-rock revival for 2020? Why not!

After saying it so many times after a few too many, I thought I'd put copyright on the phrase "I'M DRUNK AND I LOVE YOUUUUU". Apparently not.
Pop with a perfect indie-rock twist. Love it.

jack, mate, this makes me smile as wide as a watermelon slice. it simply reminds me of home. mum, dad, sister - they all love it too. i'm sure it could even get the dogs howling. new 2020 goal is to see you play this, covid-19 permitting.

the jazzy wobble in your very, very slightly offbeat synths adds such lovely texture. it's the perfect bed for those silky vocals.

a very triumphant start to your 2020 releases. xylophones can sound a bit twee sometimes but it feels totally natural during the chorus.

First review for 2020 for me, and of course it's got to be this wonderful song, by these absolute beaut souls. Congratulations on your first release / upload Coldwave. Oh how wonderful it is to hear your vocals again Harrison. After the news of Mercs coming to an end last year, seeing this new project was all too exciting. Straight off the bat those guitars are stunning + with those vocals...

Oh how wonderful it is to hear your vocals again Harrison. After the news of Mercs coming to an end last year, seeing this new project was all too exciting. Straight off the bat those guitars are stunning + with those vocals, they both compliment each other so perfectly. Big love to the chorus, and the songwriting is fantastic. Can not wait to hear more from you SA legends x

Oh yes now this is a whole lotta fun. There is so much going on, but it works so well. That bass throughout the track really stands out, with the drum beat behind. I love all the fuzzy goodness, and the effects on the vocals. Feel like this would go down an absolute treat live!
