The lyrics might be a bit too earnest for my taste, but it's delivered with the sort of passion that makes you believe every word. Plenty of musical chops as a band too in this dark euphoria.

Delicate and haunting, this song comes from a patient and knowing heart and will stir a yearning in yours.

There's lots of lovely sounds and lyrical images here. At times though it feels like there's too much going on and the mood of the song doesn't quite come out and draw you further in. Overall though Georgia, well done!

Shimmering at the core of this song is a splendid kaleidoscopic heart. Both tracks (Mojo Rising too) are tops, can't wait to hear more!

This song's gotta strong sparkle in its eye and I like the ambling jangle of the guitars. A lot of promise from this band, keep up the good work!

It's Friday, everyone's knocked off for the day and I'm at my desk earbuds in, gleefully nodding away to this. Feels so snap crisp!

Keep coming back to have another listen to this one. Pretty straight up indie roots track but you give it some fine expression and hence, a special little spark!

Really feeling this one. Plenty of heart in the words & delivery and the surge in the chorus is a total high!

The space and textures of the instruments and voice invite you to soak in some solitary night air. Sweetly eerie and unsettlingly dreamy stuff.

There's guts as well as sweetness to your voice Asta! Can hear the potential for this one for sure.

Very clever how you built a disco ball into the track! When I press 'play' the room starts to glisten and sparkle! Touche Mr Touche!

A sweet little toe tapper. As the Doctor has made mention the harmonica is a winner as are the handclaps and the celebratory hootin' & Hollerin' at the end.

I've listened to this four times in a row and it still feels fresh and engaging. Really like the bass which brings an easy swagger to this song.

Great energy, colour and use of bag beans (see the video clip!). Totally dance-inducing and the happiness in the afterglow of the song lingers with me for a long time!

I like the layers of hypnotic sound and your strong yet sweet voice. Very easy way to while away a few minutes!

The more I listen to this song the more I smile, nod and long to be riding my bike, ice cream in hand to the faint distant pleas of my mum to come home for dinner!
