Perfectly fine. Serviceable. Inoffensive. Nice. If that's what you're after, more power to you. Best of luck.

The snare is really good on this, it's got a great crack to it. Is it a Piccolo? The recording's really good on the drums overall. Don't really like the lead guitar following the vocal melody in the verses, but there's some other pretty interesting sonic stuff here that can and should be worked on.

This is an impression of The xx so good that I'm half expecting these three guys to take off their masks and reveal it's actually them.

A charm. Some warm, harmonic indie folk with pure honey vocals and an unexpected kick to it. Get in before they're selling out rooms and you're not on the door.

Slick, radio-ready, confident. Bit of a Zedd or a Marshmallo vibe. Very a la mode. Sure it will go far.

Look! Up in the sky! It's Chaka Khan! It's Kimbra! No - it's Lady Amaziah! I'm not going to be the first to tell you this is Amaziah-ing, and I certainly won't be the last.

Much like the Penis Tower, many have tried to knock down Paper Thin. Much like the Newcastle train line, Paper Thin have been cut off and replaced by buses. Much like the Hamilton Station Hotel, Paper Thin have sticky floors but sound good and have a vibe about them. Much like Super Hubert, Paper Thin are the top children's entertainer in the greater Newcastle region. Much like the KFC in ...

What happens when a folk troubadour gets really back into They Might Be Giants and Tokyo Police Club? Here y'go. Sean is one of the best humans I've ever met. He's forgotten better songs in high school than I've ever thought of as an adult.

Spooky lo-fi folk. It sounds like it was recorded in a cave. Your voice is stunning. I hope you are not a ghost haunting the Unearthed website in your afterlife.

Oh snap, it's the Skye-t String Tangle! Just playin'. This is mad cool. Remember Tim & Jean? Fuck, that was a time. Is it too early for early 2010s electropop nostalgia? Who's got their Friendly Fires tickets? Nice Van She shirt! Sick, anyway, I'm gonna go rave in a field somewhere.

Super catchy lo-fi garage pop that I'm certain would go off live. Bit of a Honeyblood vibe, as well as later-period Kate Nash. These are both very good things.

Really nice voice, strong sense of melody, could easily see this being performed by Tinashe or Kelela or even The Weeknd. Am sure more of your own identity will come out as you make more music.

Interesting mix of the quaint guitar and the clashing electro beats. Reminded me a bit of Kosheen. Really lovely voice, too. This could work even better with a stronger sense of dynamics and maybe a bigger drop to build to. For what it is already, though, this is really good and definitely promising.

This feels like a real tease - just as I was waiting for it to kick off, the song was over! Surely there's more where that came from? Really like what I heard, but I need more of it!
