Love that subtle stomping beat through the track. It's hypnotic. Everything else on top is hard to fault too.

I'm just going to slide in here at the end of the queue.

P.S. That guitar line at 2.59 kind of did it for me.

I love the way it immediately draws you into this spiraling relationship. And keeps you there.

It wears its influences proudly (some might say too loudly), but the bass bounce in the production and those subtle percussion touches turns this into a winner for me.

Relieved that 'Reverse' wasn't a fluke. I'm going to check the whole album out now.

Wonderful atmosphere. So glad you didn't try and add too many more ingredients.

Those scuzzy '50s sci-fi chords and surf guitar lines at the start hooked me straight in. They kept me the whole way too with the simple energy + fun equation.

When I heard Rewind by her a couple of years ago, I could hear the potential. Now that potential is realized in this smart, strong and sultry track.

At 2.45 it went from 4 to 4 and a half stars. Clever stuff, executed superbly.

They've not cited Living End as an influence, but it reminds me of some of their early stuff. Big chorus, some killer riffs, a singer who believes every word he's singing, and a drummer who's holding it all down with a dose of flare here and there.

I like the directness of this. No fat. It could let fly just a little bit to unleash the lurking punk attitude I can feel in the lyrics, but it's got me intrigued for what's to come.

Honest and sincere lyrically, with a completely natural and relaxed flow, this guy's fan base is only going to keep growing across 2018.
