Woah, definitely not what I was expecting. This track builds and just soars. Really beautiful vocal tones + performance. Simple but effective guitar solo plus the ebb and flow of the song is so peaceful even though it has some heavy 'ooft' moments. So impressed.

A bit of a darker palette on this one with some massive Weeknd vibes if that's your cup of tea.

Grenade Jumper are the pure definition of strength in music. There's just such precision and impact with every note they hit and I can't get enough of their energy. You can hear the large amount of influence when you go back to back hearing songs like their previous single 'Heatwave' to this mega gem!! It's reviving elements of that gritty heavy 90s almost hardcore aest...

I'm calling it - Sneaker Kids are The Avengers ensemble equivalent of Unearthed. This harnesses some influences of the best music of 2020 - I especially liked the Posty-est vibrato on some of the opening vocal and the PC princess moments. Yew!

Just heading to an old arcade on a pier with my closest mates to spend the arvo in a montage of mischief, frolicking and memory making.

Your voice truly is something else, Hope, and when it's paired with such an interesting guitar line it's hard to not be swept up in this. Not only do you write emotionally-charged music, you perform it with such conviction that you make the listener feel what you're feeling. Love your work.
PS. That moment at 3:32 is glorious. More of that, thanks!

Absolutely adore this! A gorgeous blend of instruments, vocal samples, and natural sounds to make something I could leave on repeat all day

The sound of the swirling guitars and dynamic shifts in the song make for an interesting display of sonic storytelling told through a blend of DIY punk and psychedelic. Love this!

The intensity and the off the wall energy is what makes DREGG so iconic as a group. You can just feel what the crowd would be like listening to them. If I was playing a game such as Dodgeball, I would 1000% play this. It's WILD and the definition of insanity and I'm loving it!

You are such a special gem. I honestly will never get tired of listening to your voice. There's such a vulnerable aesthetic to your voice that makes me feel like a mirrorball. This song feels like the 2020 version of the emo Wedding singer and I'm forever obsessed. I just want more Akurei!!

this absolutely rules, so many lovely little throw away lines that you cast out and catch me on, entirely hooked and totally fine with it.

Was super stoked to see you'd dropped another track after loving your first upload - and this did not disappoint! Loving the floaty teen-dream aura here! I reckon CXLOE fans are gonna really vibe with that thick drum hitting throughout this pop charmer too.

Contrary to what you have named this song, I am absolutely not in a terrible place right now. This absolutely rips.

This is Jack Johnson meets the music that plays on Pokemon when you surf on the back of your Lapras in the ocean. Just the vibe I'm trying to reach this spring!

Forget the Snellen Chart - optometrists are just gonna play this to test your vision focus from now on. If your pupils didn't dilate when you see these two names together getcha damn eyes checked.

I swear this song gets better with every listen. You write the catchiest hooks possible, and those harmonies absolutely kill me in the best way. 'People in the Sun' is one of my most-played songs of 2020, but I wouldn't be surprised if AYBY overtakes it before the end of the year. Sunshiny, glittery goodness.

This is entrancing and cinematic, and deserves a place in a film score. I loved the slow build but felt it could have been tightened just a tad to reduce repetition. Not sure what I'm a bigger fan of, the orchestra you brought in during the last part or your band name!

Woahhhh Ronan! Stunning. I love the simplicity of this, it really makes your voice and the lyrics shine. I got the Cub Sport and Perfume Genius vibe before I even looked at your 'sounds like' section, and I think they would be proud to know they helped influence this. You've made me quite emotional listening with this - thank you.

As with every Divebar Youth song ever, I am so in love with the guitar in this. You're so slick and smooth, and you know how to write a catchy tune. Your confidence is showing more with every song you put out, and it's so nice to hear - back yourself because you're making great things!

Audio cinematography. This was a drop in a pond - and with each audio ripple that grew out it bought a new emotion and theatrical beat. Can't wait for the next rainy day so I can sit by a window, listen to this and just get lost.
