You're really finding a fifth gear here and stepping things up. It's your most polished and considered offering to date and hot damn does it deliver.

Brilliant bit of bouncing pop that isn't going to be getting unstuck from my head anytime soon.

Some absolute brilliance in the selection of sounds here. They should be grating but for some reason they're grabbing me and I adore it.

Big, big debut. Those vocals are pure bliss and bedded in a bright, polished piece of pop music. Great, great, great.

Noise rock that hooks into your subconscious and doesn't let go. I can tell I'll be singing this chorus for the next 4-14 weeks. Exceptional.
