Very fancy pop music. Smart changes and rad vocals! The lyrics kind of bring it down a little bit but maybe just coz the City/Pretty rhyme got ruined by Guns N Roses. Stoked to hear more though!

This is a cracker of a song. Sweet riffs, hot-as soulful voice. A bit hard to hear the lyrics in the high bits (so most of the song) otherwise tops. Great dynamics and structure. Love the long ending too.

Nice! Got that sweet Jezabels guitar with a London Grammar kind of vocal vibe, but then those cool drum-led rhythm changes pick it up towards the end. (Sound like the drummer can get a bit techy too, which could push a song like this into nu-metal verse territory, so be careful) Nice and emotional and stuff, would be cool to watch live.

I like me some psychedelia and this ticks all the boxes. Nice a lazy without being boring, great voice that tricks into thinking it's gonna be all low and forgettable and then heads up! Would love to see them live to see how the cool reverse effects and stuff work.

Really nice! Great guitaring, excellent vocal sound and production. And the melody is so nice and soothing without being predictable, the bits where you leave it hanging for a bit and then jump up lift it above a normal folky tune. Nice!

Dudes. Brutality. Really dig the dual vocals (and if they're not, well done but good luck doing it live), and the dynamics. Great recording too. Crisp and plenty of space, almost industrial sounding. Would like to hear a more Australian vocal in the breakdown, but otherwise tops!

That riff is killer! As much as I like tension and suspense, you could probably get the song started a bit quicker, save the long intro for live. Can't wait to hear more stuff!

That voice! Sweet 80s punk with enough rhythm changes and stuff to not get boring (yes, 1:46 songs can still get boring). Slightly tighter playing would probably help, but I'm not one to talk.

Strong, powerful, and thankfully, not boring! This music can get very pedestrian, only coz a lot of people are doing it. But I think the backing vocals help lift it and th fancy polyrhythms as well. Let's face it, Butterfly Effect aren't doing anything at the moment.

I really dig this tune. It steers clear of Nu-Metal, which is the danger mixing riffs with beats. And awesome riffs too. The high singing bit gives it a cool lift too, though the voice sounds a bit squeezed up that high. Cool!

I love how lo-fi recordings separate the good songwriting from the not-so-good. And this proves it. A top song! And as you said, declaring your love for the TeePee. But is there a line about the "Curse of the cameltoe"?

Heard this song this morning and instantly loved it. Max is right, there's a 90s vibe, especially in the drums, but it works coz the melody and mad bass are so tops.

Nice tune dude. Really nice melody reminiscent of a City & Colour kind of vibe. Watch that band bio though, it makes you look a bit corporate/cafe rock, unlike the budding songwriting genuises you are.

Cripes dude, what a voice! Production leaves it a little flat, nylon strings not quite giving it the lift it needs (though maybe I just don't understand this 100 songs mix thing) Love the ambient backing vox too.

Nice tune. Really like the way the cello and stuff comes in like it does. Probably need to watch the tuning of the mandolin and watch some of the lyrics for cramming too much into a sentence, but otherwise tops!

This song is great. Though I can't work out if it's a edgy electric folk tune or a slightly basic metal song with the palm-muted guitars in the chorus. Strip back the distortion and let the song shine through I reckon. Now, off to check out what your Birds Of Tokyo song is about.

Whilst I question the validity of the title, sweet song! massive wall of sound and crushing groove changes and vocals. Just watch the American twang slipping in.

Very accomplished sound for such a tender age. Brutal and the melodic vocals aren't too pretty like other bands like this. Nice!
