You've fit the whole love/ lust narrative in a smooth and soulful 4 mins complete with "ohhs", "ahhs", a cassette tape and a voice memo. From the heart stopping moment of meeting a new crush, to the fumbling feeling pre-catch up, to the heart squeeze when they tell you they don't feel the same. I appreciate you laying out your inner monologue under a backing track ...

I appreciate you laying out your inner monologue under a backing track that's such a jam - it's helped my goofy self feel less singled out by all the feelings!

You've generously opened yourself up to create this deep, earthy track. You shift so delicately from this earnest, heavy space to unfold it in the chorus through the use of your soaring vocal and intertwined strings to evoke such a range of emotions. Somehow, you've managed to make it rattling and calming all at once.

This is easily one of the more original tracks that I've heard of late. To hear you take a chance and force the drastic switch about a third of the way through, creating an explosion of broken, disintegrating, electronic beats, was so disruptive to listen to in the best way. I could imagine floating in space just watching the cosmos with this playing in my headphones.

Yooo, I'm feeling so empowered by this one! I'm already bouncing along to the chorus, just like I would if it was a City Girls or Cardi B track playing. As well as some pro production, you are so good a showing this sassy, in your face attitude so confidently. I can't wait till I can get wild to this in the club!

What a treat to find this shoegaze track during my first week as a part of the UE team. You've all done so well to create such a cozy, warm but stark soundscape that we all need right now. I adore the musicians you're getting inspiration from and it's filtering through the basslines and space you've used so well to form this tune.

Laid back groovy guitars, touch of reggae, soft understated vocals and suspenseful break downs, another talented group of boys from Perth.

Saw these boys for their Small Talk EP Launch at The Bird on Saturday night, and Only Child went off. Not only are these boys technically great artists they are an uplifting presence on stage. Congrats on the release boys.

These boys have tonnes of talent! Beautiful lyrics which suits the singers voice and I especially like the guitar riff just that just fits nicely in between verses.
