Another stunning song from Divebar Youth. I'm really impressed by the versatility of Vinnie's voice: soft, gentle, rusty, bold and confident, all in one song. It's interesting to hear him use the guitar to reel you in, in contrast to vocal hooks in previous releases; that riff is reminiscent of Nothing But Thieves and Arctic Monkeys, and it's darn tasty.

This song would fit in the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World soundtrack perfectly.

Nobody writes catchy choruses like Cry Club, and this is proof of that. Another tasty treat from the dynamic duo.

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.

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.

Dang, you really burst out of the starting gates with the thrashing guitars and groovy bass riff. Absolutely loving the fact Damon’s drumming is shining here, and how well Brodie’s voice slots in with it all. And that guitar moment from 1:23 to 1:41?? What gives you ANY right to have such an INCREDIBLE line in there?! I think once it’s pointed out, it’s obvious that 3/4 of these members...

I think once it’s pointed out, it’s obvious that 3/4 of these members were in Pemberton; there are a few similarities but it’s still very different. I’m a really big fan of this and excited to see what’s to come.

I like that you’ve gone a bit against the classic pop punk formula here, I think you’ve pulled it off. That chorus is catchy as heckkkk, gonna be singing nothing but that for at least the next three days. I would’ve liked to hear the vocals without such noticeable alterations but I reckon that’s the only negative thing I can find in the whole song. Nice one!

Not sure how you lot continue to keep out-doing yourselves, yet here we are again. Love this - definitely see it becoming a new fave.

Soooo stoked we finally get a recorded version of Cameo! Finn's vocals are on point and the guitars bounce off each other really well. Y'all are the best at including embellishments in your music and this is another example of that - the claps and little guitar notes add something special to this song. This is one to listen to with both earphones in to get the full experience.

Woahhhhh. This is VERY cool - kinda like a darker version of CXLOE. Love the minimalism and how bloody catchy this is!

Love the groove in this! Definitely lost myself in it and had my head bopping along for all four minutes and four seconds.

HOOOOOOLY MOLY. Those vocals are angelic, not animalistic! It's hard to believe this is your debut. The annunciation is perfect and the storytelling is brilliant. I love the dreamy, chilled out vibe.. could definitely see you on a lineup with Hatchie, Paradise Club, Pinkish Blu, and Dress Code - brb starting my own festival

I've never yelled 'OH SHIT' during a song as loud as when I did on that huge note at 2:37! The big notes throughout the song come out of nowhere and they are PERFECT! I love how this builds and I love the lyrics and I love the rawness of your vocals and I love EVERYTHING about this. Catch me never stopping talking about this. SO! DANG! GOOD!

This is some truly tasty pop punk, albeit more punk than pop. It's something a little different to the usual method of this genre. The vocal melodies and drums combine really well! A tight track overall.

Love that grungy guitar and the little piano line. The delivery of the vocals feels a bit emotionless at times but the tone and melody is niceeeee. Really good lyrics and I love the breakdown at 2:59. Keen to see this band grow.

Besides the catchy hooks, fun and frustrated lyrics, and that slick percussion line, I absolutely adore the way you hold certain letters or sounds in a way that is not the most obvious path most writers would travel. You have a unique and unconventional take on that element which is refreshing and it keeps me wanting to hear more! Clever songwriting.
