Bit late to the party. But glad I could still sneak in and say hi and nice work.

Plenty of strength in this one. Both lyrically and musically.

This has a vibe. Exciting one too. I can hear the JPEGMAFIA in it, also a bit of Shabazz Palaces. It's cool. Keep doing it.

It's a big effing bore, for sure. Unlike this song. Great stuff.

The drive and passion behind what you're doing, and how into it you guys obviously are, hit me pretty fast listening to this. Got a good feeling about the future.

Was wondering when your JID influence was going to appear. Oh right, 1.15 in, there it is! That's impressive. Overall, commanding stuff.

The beat is good, the piano is even better, and the rest just delivers. Such a great hook.

Impressive flow and love the guitar loop. One that slides into the world of emo rap with ease.

The sexy cheek in the vocal, and then the thumping and face-melting production, is an impressive little combo. And extra marks too for that tasteful guitar solo at 2.50.

Grounded by a nice little New Order guitar lick, the shadows of other '80s alt-guitar heroes subtly appear through this one. Not a criticism at all, as the song possesses a (broken) heart of its own.

Infectious doesn't feel like a good word to use right now, but that's the first thing that came to mind. This floats. Swick's production is spot on, providing the space and warmth beneath Skeez's natural flow.

Love it when that bass comes in at the start. And the little bit of BENEE phrasing in the chorus works well too. Glad to hear you have more songs to come.

I reckon a few Ball Park Music fans will dig this if they check it out. The fellow Brisbane band share lots of their clever melodic ingredients on this one.

Some nice picking going on here, especially in that little breakdown halfway through. Great feel in the voice too - not too forced.

Nicely produced, with all the reverb and delayed beats, and the vocal delivery is really warm and intimate too. Keen to hear more.
