So I don’t know what happened but this is such a welcome direction. Big Crazy Penis vibes, and those disco strings and that wild bass is all I’ll live for now I reckon.

This feels so counterintuitively clear Ryan. It's obviously a complex piece of music with all these polyrhythms and all that, but there's a really clean throughline that runs through it all, locking everything into order.

‘I’m not 40 yet’ is all I can hear in that chorus and I wanted to thank you for the reminder!

Excellent song too btw. Love you guys!

Sometimes you come across a song on this ol’ site and it knocks you around, smacks you between the eyes, and you relate hard to it. Like, a lot. This happened with this. Thanks Ruby.

The grating screech of the electric against the rhythmic guitar picking and your sublime voice makes this so great. What a song!

All of this is very, very, smooth, and funky and has really thrown my head and neck all outta whack. Will press play again to put everything back together. And then, hey, I guess I might repeat.

Mickey and co, this is one of the most assured sounding pieces of new Australian music I’ve heard in an awful long time. Doesn’t faff about and is executed so bloody well!

Ok this is great. Love how ‘cute’ it sounds and how it somehow doesn’t clash with the complexity of the songwriting/playing/instrumentation. Real brilliant.

This is a perfect mix between big production and a slight messiness. It underplays the grandness that a track like this could go for, and it's all the better for it. V strong. Thank you!

All of this is very very good. Love how it just continues to ramp up - things feel expertly placed and crafted. There's no faffing about either - the short bar in the first chorus is just a great move. All of it is just a great move Grace!

For a band that has nothing in their profile, you really stick a whole heap into this one tune. Well played. Well played.

Beautifully crafted pop song here Elle. Still has your stamp all over it, but I'm liking this 'straighter' direction.

Wowee. Was kinda convinced that this would be a fave of mine just from those opening guitars. But then your vocals came through and, i mean, let's scrap that 'kinda' hesitation. This IS a fave of mine, and will be for some time yet.

Have been sitting with these lyrics for a coupla days now Ro. Super relatable, and I'm finding myself discovering new things on each listen. Real tightly wound production to top it all off too. Very keen on more.

This is excellent - hits hard. It's stuff we all need to hear and know about, and take action on. Love the switches in flow too - sits beautifully against that production.

It's a small detail, but that sparkle you get from the ride cymbal in the opening really lifts this. It hints at the crescendo to come really well. And geez that build is tingle (and cry) heaven.

Grace, this is masterful. Really nicely set up and the way you strip the guitar back in those verses really lets your vocals shine through. And all this for a debut? Increds in my books.
