This is one of the few songs my brother and I share the same opinion on, and that is it's bloody brilliant. Don't underestimate how much of an achievement this agreement is. Congratulations.

Georgia your voice is gorgeous! I've listened to this song three times in a row this morning and I am still spellbound. "To be alive is to be awake and these days, darling, I am just so tired" - love this!!! Your storytelling is poignant and witty, and the way you weave different musical elements together to complement the lyrics is smart. Great stuff.

I love the genuine rock vibe I get from this. Many newer bands have tried it but have ended up being more pop punk flavour, and although this definitely has a hint of punk, it's the most straight-down-the-line rock I've heard from a local act in a while. The twinkly guitar line complements Tristan's vocals, while the solid drums hold the track steady. Real nice.

My god, you're so good. You had me hooked in from that first line. You entice with the polished, almost held-back vocals, but those clever guitar melodies are so interesting that it wouldn't even matter if the vocal line was boring. The way you unleash in the chorus is just brilliant, too. And the change-up at 2.32!!! Far out, I love this - apologies to the other bands I planned on li...

I won't lie, at first I didn't see the hype around this track. But then I got to see it performed live and oh. my. GOODNESS. You totally won me over then and there! The intricacies of the harmonies and the simplistic-sounding instrumentals complement each other so well, and the lyrics are just so relatable.

Feel good anthem of the year! Not gonna lie, it took me a while to like this track, yet here I am months after it was released, completely in love. It's one of those songs where you can hear the artist smiling while singing. So catchy and fun.

I honestly can't get over the beauty of this song. The heartbreak and the hope shared is raw and honest. You've got the perfect balance of strength and delicacy in your voice which I just can't help but be drawn to. You're special, flowerkid. Really special.

Jangly guitars plus wind instruments = instant love! The vocals remind me of San Cisco too. Love the upbeat-but-chilled atmosphere this song brings. Gonna blast this one at the beach this summer, I reckon!

So glad we've got a studio version of this! Love the dark and light especially in the vocal line, and how the drums and synths really accentuate the rhythm every other instrument has. Coupon has been a fave of mine from your live set for a long time, and now I can listen to it whenever I bloody well want - thank you.

The intro reminded me of new BMTH but then that major scale underlying guitar line came in and gave some solid rock vibes. Getting hints of old school Blink, plus a bit of MCR.. the whole combination actually makes for something fresh and exciting. It's hard to slot this into one genre and I think that's why I'm so intrigued. Keen to see where this band goes.

Those riffs are the absolute highlight - so interesting and colourful. Ambleside-like vocals with crunchy instrumentals that somehow make me want to dance? Here for it.

Introvert is back and better than ever! Not ashamed to say I listened to this 12 times in a row as soon as it was uploaded. The vocal tone is perfect, the jagged dynamic in instrumentals are fun, and the lyrics are simple but clever. And that intro is so reminiscent of 'You Can Count on Me' by fellow Newy boys Trophy Eyes. 'Everything is Different Now' was my most played son...

'Everything is Different Now' was my most played song of 2016, but I can totally see 'Somewhere Else' growing to be my favourite song of theirs!

This is like if Ali Barter and Charli XCX had a love child. Love the subtle theatrics and delicate vocals.

This is a nice little turn from Endless Heights. Great to hear them explore their vulnerability in this track. Low key, chilled vibes - great for some Sunday arvo listening.

I couldn't help the little 'ooh!' that escaped my mouth when this started. Thornhill is one of those rare Australian heavy acts which pushes their own boundaries with each release, yet consistently hits the mark. How does this sound so gritty but so clean at the same time?! I'm so excited for the future of this band.

Big fan of the way you've presented your message here. So weird but cool to hear an electro-punk intro which jumps up to Brit pop-rock then back again - it's definitely one way to catch my attention and it looks like you've done the same with heaps of other people, too! Hope you don't make us wait too long to hear the follow up to this.
