Had the song pegged as simply a decent Eilish-inspired number until that r'n'b breakdown kicked in. That was a twist all of its own.

The song is clever as is. But when it suddenly breaks down the fourth wall towards the end, it's getting mighty close to genius.

Donnie from Gang Of Youths getting some mates together and creating a perfect soundtrack for my next road trip. Or in place of one.

An attention grabber right from the start. And it leaves you with a desire for more. That's what every debut single should ideally try and achieve.

Love the murky mood of this. Hits a little on a Rich Brian and BROCKHAMPTON tip for me too.

I actually feel like I'm riding around town when I put this on. You got me on a bike, guys! Nice work.

There are some great moments on Natalie's new album. This is just a taste of what she has on offer in the way of euro-retro-neo soul.

That big fat synth line is the deal. Good chorus too.

I'd usually say just chill out. But then if you did, we wouldn't have gotten this smart little tale of stress testing. So hang onto that anxiety.

Took me a few go's to get used to that almost Tom Snowdon vocal delivery. But I kept coming back, and glad I did. There's something really compelling about that bass line. But I'm also hearing some '70s West Coast/jazz rock influences in here which ain't something I come across every day.

Getting '90s vibes with the folk/hip hop blend, but there's nothing telling me this guy is out of place in 2020. Another solid offering from Saint. Inspired choice getting Robbie Miller's sweet tones on this one too.
