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.

Love how fresh this feels. I don't love I called you a 'he' on air though. My brain processed this all wrong at first. But the five stars are not out of guilt. Those were always a given.

I keep on thinking of the word 'steel' when I listen to this. It's got a strength in that bass line, and a very industrial menace overall.
