Oh Sarah, your voice is magical! That Aurora vibe is there straight away. Your writing is vivid and relatable. This is really exciting to listen to - can't wait to see where you go from here! Catch me in the front row at your next show!!

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.

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.

Who gave you the right to write a track this good?! This is so dang catchy! And your voice is gorgeous! Very cool Vera Blue x Julia Jacklin vibes.

Oh this is GOOOOOOD. Proper punk stuff. Love the breakdown-style change-up at the 1.53 mark. There's a venue here in Adelaide where I can see this going down perfectly live - hit me up if you're keen to come interstate for a show.

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.

Dreamy as frickkkk. You guys have really stepped up your writing here, both lyrically and instrumentally - the story is so vivid and easy to imagine. And that riff is funky as hell! I just cannot get this track out of my head, bloody great stuff.

I love that when you hear a song of by The Montreals, you automatically know it's a The Montreals song - you have your own unique, bubbly sound. You guys just hit the nail on the head every time. I honestly can't find a flaw in this. Your best song to date.

The contrast in this track is on point. This takes all the best elements Basement, Sleep Talk and DZ Deathrays have to offer and combines them to make a tight but rattling punk track. Great hooks.

I've been nervous to hear your second single, because your debut was just so damn good. But I had nothing to worry about - this is glorious! This is what it would sound like if Gretta Ray and Hatchie made music together. Agnes, your vocals are so versatile and magical, and the twinkly guitar line is so complementary of it. LOVE.

Great storytelling here - and unfortunately it's a little too relatable for too many of us. I'd love to hear the vocals a bit stronger, and maybe more percussion. Maz, your vocal tone is beautiful, and that beat is fun. There's huge potential here and I'm excited to see it explode!

You've picked out all the best bits from 'Jackie' and 'Just Exist' and melded them perfectly for 'Pull Apart Heart'. I don't think I could love this more if I tried.

Those vocals absolutely blow my mind every time I hear them. Such range and tone! The fuzzy guitar riffs and coasting drums really complement the vocals too. I feel like it could've built up a bit quicker so we get more of that deliciousness in the last minute of the track, but the anticipation is what hooks me in - you always have me on the edge of my seat the first time I hear a new song...

Well, ain't this a bit of fun! I never knew I wanted a surf-rock version of the Pixies until now. Solid first release.

Your voice is one of my favourites, Hazel, and this is my favourite song of yours. I adore your lyricism and the emotion which bursts through in the guitar line. I hope you never stop making music.

Interesting lyrics paired with sick riffs makes for a winning song, in my eyes. Really vibing that The Living End vibe you've got going on.
