Lunar pop indeed. This has more twists and turns than the moon buggy dodging craters.

Suddenly overcome with the desire to be in the middle of a pit. Must. Thrash. All. The. Things.

It's rarer than a super blue blood moon for a song, let alone a debut, stop me in my tracks like this did. Every build is perfect, understated, smart. (also shout outs your mismatched shoes I dig it)

A highlight from your live set that totally translates on record. You can hear a marked progression in each of the songs you've uploaded - sharper songwriting, tighter playing. Spice Girls meets Black Sabbath indeed!

I love how this straddles being both clean and bright, then rough and raucous. It's a good balance.

I'm hearing a bit of a Lily Allen lilt to the delivery, which rules. Makes sense you're working with some big names in the game.

Digging this in the same way I dig bands like Boards Of Canada - that gorgeous textural modulation that just seems to effortlessly soundtrack lazy afternoons.

You know those slow motion videos of liquids shaking with sound vibrations? That's what I feel like right now. 10/10 on that low synth hum.
