There's so much warmth, consideration and genuine beauty in your voice. Stunner.

I dig this because it strikes a good balance. It's got a bit of production polish to it, but enough grit still in there to make it sound genuine. The vocals are strong, but not showy. The guitars are right in the tone-zone, not too GarageBand primitive or ProTools slick. Just really solid, no-frills power-pop. I'm on board.

The drop at 1:02 is all class. Really, really polished song layered with some brilliant hooks.

I feel like I'm on the precipice of something massive here, like in maybe 6-12 months time I'll see this woman on the main stage of a festival and the place will be PACKED. The vocals, the beat, the hook... it's all here. It's all ready to go. It truly feels like a "when," not "if" moment. That's pretty special.

This is such a sweet, simple offering. It has all the intimacy of an iPhone recording. Paris has a really gorgeous voice, especially when the harmonies kick in. I would love to hear these tracks with a fuller arrangement.

I think you could have come right out with Something More 2.0 and you would have been right. Which makes the chances you took on this song all the more sweeter.

I'm the first to admit I've generally been pretty apathetic about this band in the past - nothing I heard or saw really stood out to me. This track is the first time that has changed, and I'm impressed by what's on offer here. The chord progression feels like a pop-punk retelling of Ride by The Vines, while the chorus is rousing and definitely festival-friendly. If the band ...

The chord progression feels like a pop-punk retelling of Ride by The Vines, while the chorus is rousing and definitely festival-friendly. If the band continue in this direction, I'll definitely be investigating further. One gripe, though: "Antisocial" stretched out to five syllables is a Neddy No-No.

A very quaint, very sweet number here. Kind of a low-key Adele vibe, which suits me just fine. Essie and Lanks' voices go very well together; reminds me of the Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy duets. Would not be opposed to more of them in the future.

Those influences come through thick the second that atmospheric synth starts ringing. With a nice pop edge, there is a lot to like here. Great work.

This project feels all the more accomplished with every release and this collab with LANKS is yet another notch in your rising star status. A nice change up from your previous releases which are more upbeat, with it also sounding great when performed live. Proud of you!

Aside from the fact I'm hearing a bit Dave Le'aupepe in the vocal, those instruments are also very GOY too. Having just stumbled on this now, wow, this is truly a gem. Powerful and anthemic, it's grand in nature. Your attention is demanded the second that chorus is pleaded. You guys are onto something special and I'm certainly going to keep tabs. Huge debut upload!

Perfect amount of indie. Perfect amount of pop. With summer approaching, I could definitely see myself blasting this by a pool. The comparisons have already been made but there some lowkey San Cisco vibes going on here. Also, that guitar is funky and fun. Great work!

Those "CULT CLASSIC" sections leave me to believe that this would go down an absolute treat live. The power in the instruments sell the theatrics of your sound. Not sure how you can't be a fan. Johnny Hunter are one of the finds of 2018 for me.

Huge Smith Street vibes here. Listening to your other uploads, you can pen this down as three from three. Point me to the pit, love it.

Fuzzy indie-rock with a captivating atmosphere. Nestled around that guitar, Anthony's vocal is gripping and doesn't let go for the entire duration of the song. Big time October upload. Love it!

If this is what heaven sounds like, sign me the heck up. Another piece of magic with co-producer credits to Mr O.Dawson. Another name I'm almost certain we're about to see break in the next 12 months. Huge follow-up to 'Rewind'.

If you're gonna do a solo project, make sure it sounds nothing like your main band. Consider Denise the Gwen Stefani to Boat Show's No Doubt - mostly because this shit is bananas AND it's hella good. That crystal guitar sound and those warm harmonies... what a dream.
