A real head-noddin', toe-tappin' tune! Goofy yet charming, and a true bop. And the video is out of this world! Great job, team.

I'm Losing Breath because of this Chokehold (-; this is another huge step up from Oaks. Absolutely loving James's vocal tone, the brilliant bridge, the top harmonies in the last chorus, the Knuckle Puck-esque guitars, and just how tight this is in general. Chokehold is more than Oak-ay.

I like to see tracks like this, Jack. Your songwriting is simply captivating; you know how to hook the listener in and keep them on the edge of their seat, waiting to hear what happens next. The drums provide apt builds here and I really love the guitar lines.

This is just how I like my hot chocolate: smooth and rich with a dash of sugar. Bloody delicious.

Hell. Yes. This has some real Northlane x new Ocean Grove vibes, which I totally dig. Easily one of the best songs to come out of New South Wales this year - hope we get to see you perform this live on tour soon!

That Tove Lo influence really shows! Chilled electronic hip hop with great production - only downfall is it finishes too soon! This is a strong debut and I'm excited to see what's next.

This is kinda like Dear Seattle but less shouty. I really enjoy the rise and fall of this track, and those riffs and harmonies!!! I feel like it's missing a last extra kick it needs to keep it going, but it's definitely still a good song. Keen to see what's next.

Dreamy and dreary all at once. Really big fan of the imagery you create with your lyrics - "I wrote the words 'I love you' 'cause an old French film from '65 told me to" is such a vivid line. Not as strong as Capricorn and Lovely in my opinion, but still a banger.

Recently saw your band at Woolly Mammoth and you were one of my highlights of the day by far! Really love the honesty in this, the change of pace, the harmonies, and the many intricacies used to tell a simple story. Big fan of you four - I want to see your name up in lights!

Reckon this one might be my favourite Bugs track! Or, at least, my equal favourite (Instant Coffee 4eva). Love the upbeat-sounding punk you bring to this forlorn world - thank you.

Hey, can you hold me up, please? I'm just trippin' over how beautiful Brianna's voice is. Very The Lazy Susans x The Hard Aches-esque. Gorgeous stuff!

I wish I knew how you make your songs so damn catchy! Not only are you guys fun and loveable, but you're bloody brilliant songwriters, too. Stoked to hear some AFLW stars in this one!

This is smooth and sexy and everything an RnB-inspired track should be. I love the intimacy and ingenuity in the writing. Once again she has nailed the production, and that little guitar solo near the end is the perfect touch. Another beauty from this beauty!

That whole intro flippin' RULES! Really sets the tone of the song and it's a great overview of you guys as a band. Every element of this song weaves together well, and the production on this is top notch. Catch me blasting this at my next barbecue.

There are two things I love the most in life: punk music and the Essendon Football Club. Thank you for bringing them together so perfectly. This brings me so much joy that I don't even care if we finish in the top eight anymore (well, actually I do, but that ruins this review). Bloody ripper stuff.

Everything about this is charming, but in particular the lyrics and the harmonica solo. Good laying-in-bed-on-a-rainy-Sunday-morning music.

You didn't have to go that hard, but you went and bloody did it, didn't ya. Those vocals are ridiculous. Tight guitar line with drums that enunciate all the right parts.
