The lyrics and vocal are what draw you in immediately. But the production and arrangement of this is really clever and shows you've got a great ear for that stuff as well.

The beat and production grabbed me straight away. Then the fresh take on your life and outlook won me over too.

The warmth of the voice hit me straight away. The lyrical honesty is also striking and bold.

Plenty to like in this track. Love how it plays off that percussive rhythm. Fans of Maggie Rogers will find something here for sure.

Late to the party with this one. But fashionably late. It's a good party too.

Misery loves company. Great line. Dark stuff here, but shit times usually = great songs. Case in point here.

You kept us waiting again. Sounds like the time's been spent well though. Nice production from Lucianblomkamp, and some lingering lyrics that hang nicely in the air.

Wish I could start again. That's a great hook right there. Loving those little guitar lines through the song too.

That ramp up around the 2.30 mark. And then those power chords. I heard that and made that wanky chef signage when something tastes good. With the fingers? And the smacking of the lips? When is this site getting some friggin' emojis to help me out.

That '60s swirling, psychedelic production is inspired. Sets this track immediately apart from 95% of the hip hop around right now. Then you just throw out these lines - one after another - without breaking a sweat. Impressive.

Felt good giving this one its first play to the world (not a boast, just a fact). The way the song goes up through the gears works well. Joel Quartermain's production supported Fergus's vision perfectly on this.

Love what you're going for. The voice is the key to this one too. Looking forward to the album in September.
