What a delight this song is. Reminds me of the songs I discovered while surfing LiveJournal and MySpace late at night in the early 2000s.

This is so ambitious! I have no idea how you have managed to make all these elements sound so great and work together so harmoniously, but DAMN I am glad you did. What a tune.

Kinda playful, kinda serious, incredibly beautiful. That's a damn good combination in my books. So intrigued and excited to hear what comes next.

There's just something about a peppy heartbreaker... This is sweet and sad and it's probably gonna roll around in my head for the rest of the night.

Love the guitar sounds, the punch of the rhythm section and the confident vocal. Really nice stuff.

I'll never forget where I was when I first heard this come on the radio. It's just one of those tracks. When I went back to listen closer, I was struck by the frankness of the lyric. Made it even better. Get it, Mason.

You need a pretty special voice to live up to that incredible beat and bass line. You make it sound easy. This is world class.

Less is more when you've got a voice like this. Every word just cuts through so gloriously. Understated perfection.

Incredible songwriting, amazing performance, perfect production. It has a kind of casual intimacy that is so endearing and makes me so keen to see you play it live. Brilliant stuff.

I needed this. We all need this. Gordon Koang is among the greatest musical gifts we've received in recent years. The spirit in this music is so nourishing.

My favourite of your songs yet and I already loved your work. Can't pick my favourite bit about this: guitar sounds, catchy melody, the delivery... thankfully I don't have to.

Your voice is so captivating and your writing is wonderfully economical. The gentle atmospheric touches in the production and the brevity of the song make it feel so fleeting, but the writing and performance make it so memorable. This song sounds unbelievable and I cannot wait to see you play it live (could be a while...).

I love everything about this. Classy and cosmic in equal measure. Great playing that doesn't get in the way of the song's feel. So good.

I think the atmosphere of this track might be my favourite part. It feels fragile and foggy and fits with the lyric so nicely.

You've no shortage of catchy songs, but geez this one might be the most addictive earworm of them all.

Cinematic pop executed with utter class. Love the unhurried pace and the myriad production touches that all fit together so tidily.

Sweet, wistful, classic pop. Would like to hear the vocals come forward a bit, as they get a bit lost. But plenty to like here.
