That Johnny Marr guitar jangle. That Grant McLennan lyric set. That Lucksmiths chorus. Sure, this is a musical mosaic, but it's also an entirely arresting work of art on its own accord. It hits with all the pensive, reflective joy of a bittersweet Sunday morning. It's not often you can honestly say "I wish I wrote this song," but a myriad of singer-songwriters will be servin...

It hits with all the pensive, reflective joy of a bittersweet Sunday morning. It's not often you can honestly say "I wish I wrote this song," but a myriad of singer-songwriters will be serving as the proverbial Spartacus on that front after hearing this.

If this isn't the definition of "an ex-punk putting on a flannel shirt and singing their heart out" then I don't know what is.

Don't need any desert tonight because this song has all the good and sweet flavours I need to enjoy my night.

I will forever yell from the rooftops of how incredibly talented you guys are, and this new track is just everything. The sound you have created on Yellow, Blue & Grey has so much depth, volume, character and is just sonically breathtaking.

I will forever yell from the rooftops of how incredibly talented you guys are, and this new track is just everything. The sound you have created on Yellow, Blue & Grey has so much depth, volume, character and is just sonically breathtaking. Those guitars are sharp, crunchy, full of life and gives the track so many different layers, and works perfectly coupled with those vocals. As soon as it hits the 2:20 mins onwards, those vocals hit me, and are just so striking. Noah, I'll forever be in awe of the way you can hit those impeccable tones in your voice. The songwriting in this one is just gorgeous. Witnessing this track played live a few weeks back, the live performance truly left a great impact. You can hear the love and passion the five of you have put into this track. This is 2:57 mins of perfection. Thank you for releasing such a stunning song into this world. My favourite release of 2019!

I've never felt more at home than in the front row of an Azim Zain show, so my review is always going to be completely biased, but I think this could be one of your very best yet (and I think you're the very best).

One of the best pop emergences of 2019. You've dominated this sound all year and I can't wait to see where it takes you in 2020.

I had cheap headphones in for this at first, as soon as the drop hit I had to pause and go borrow some good ones to give this the respect it deserves. I love this, I am so drawn into so many elements of it, it keeps you on edge from start to finish, it's interesting around every corner, it is just so damn good.

Like a strong serving of Bone Sauce on your afternoon tacos, this track is hot, spicy, and also might make you tear up a little.

I'm flying with the stars and just in admiration of this track! Such a beautiful song. I love how intimate and personal this song feels. It's kind of that light in the dark song you feel like really resonates a sense of self growth and development, which I love. This song is incredible and thrives on the grand scheme of its subtle details. There's so much to love! I love the back...

This song is incredible and thrives on the grand scheme of its subtle details. There's so much to love! I love the backing vocals that respond in the chorus, I love how your vocals are just tip toeing so effortlessly. I just felt like I was in at a modern ballet and being in awe of the strength and the pure emotion behind every detail of this song. Truly just timeless and so effortless! This song makes me feel like it's snowing hehe

I feel like the Dragon warrior listening to this song. It's so epic and large in sound and the energy just sizzles goosebumps! I love how dramatic the drums are and how it's like an ultimate smackdown in the chorus when the vocals deliver. It just PUNCHES!!!

Oooooo I'm floating along the vibe to this! I love how informative and the heartpouring tone of this song is. There's just a realness and sense of wisdom in this song with the purity of the vocals. I'm feeling SZA vibes but its more laid back and just resonates so soulfully in a cloudy almost acoustic fashion. ALSO the backing vocals that transition to the last hook are STUNNING!...
