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 perfect blend of The Ghost Inside and Polaris. Love those soaring vocals.

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.

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!

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.

I love the ingenuity in your writing. This song comes across as simple but it's clever, with little embellishments in all the right places. Charming and honest.

As much as I loved The Chase, it's so wonderful to hear Bec's vocals shine clearer than before in this new project. I love the guitar break which kicks in right when it's needed, and the production on this track is pristine. Huge PVRIS vibes! A really well-rounded song.

Atmospheric and uplifting are the two words I'd use to describe this song best. Loving the strength of the piano line and the richness of the vocals. A real drive-along-the-coast-blasting-this kind of song.

Instrumentals remind me of a Kasey Chambers tune, but those vocals are like a smooth Stevie Nicks. Your storytelling is vivid and colourful, you had me hanging on every word.

What the hell! This is HUGE! I was really enjoying those chill lo-fi vibes, nek minnit that second pre-chorus came in and not only knocked me over, it ran back and forth over me at least six times. This is honestly so good it is just plain ridiculous. Your vocals are something else. I'm speechless.

This goes HARD. Thrashing guitars, bold drums, and grungy, driven vocals tie in perfectly for Clove's strongest song yet. I am SO DANG EXCITED for this EP!

I tell ya what, it's so bloody wonderful to have a group of blokes who love nothing more than barbecues and beers wearing their hearts on their sleeves like this. Love those The Wonder Years vibes.

Where the heck have you been hiding?! You're the Stella Donnelly x Soccer Mommy x Laura Marling kind of artist I have been dying to find. And you're in my state! I absolutely adore this, please never stop making music (and please play some shows!).

The tone of your vocals is what I love most here; it's soft in parts and strong in others, it's not whiny like a lot of others in this style, and it complements the instrumental lines instead of trying to be the most powerful part of the track. Love the storytelling in this too. Really well done.

Once again, EATD providing the song I didn't know I needed right now. I love how the frustration of the story is told not only through the lyrics, but the dynamics, too. On the first listen I was holding out for the track to kick up a notch, and it did at the perfect time. A well-crafted song which is potentially my new fave by this band - well done, gang.

Packs punches in all the right places. There's a huge amount of potential here, I'm excited to see what it blooms into.
