I listened to this song the second it came out because the hype around the tune was so bloody real. To say this is one of the most exciting Unearthed track I've heard in a long time is an understatement. This is one of the best local songs I've heard since I've been super usering! Just so wholesome, energetic, dynamic, layered and fun. I can't wait for Fiz to put out beautif...

UGH there's distortion on this for days. It's rocky but it doesn't lose any of its melodics or beauty to the roughness. Rough on the outside with a pure, lovely core.

Just LOVE the way this song builds and builds and builds. The violins and strings in it are just so mesmerising and beautiful. The harmonies??? MAGNIFICENT! I am now a big Tulliah fan :D

Oh my god - sorry I'm typing this mid-review and I'm seriously welling up with tears. The chorus of this song is just so heartfelt and hits the perfect cry spots. I don't know if you've seen the movie Holding the Man but this stands next to it as a perfectly nuanced, emotional piece of art. It's bittersweet, it's emotional and makes me nostalgic for the past.

Such a great title that evokes the vibes of the song perfectly. It's such a pretty song that lets out a calming warmth. That continual piano line is so hypnotising too. This is an incredible debut. What did you do? You released one of the best debuts of the year! Fantastic work!

If this was performed live, I wouldn't imagine would be able to speak above a whisper during this track. They would be so captivated by it, they'd probably forget to breathe too. That was the most captivating 4 minutes I've had in a while.

I don't know why but this really reminds me of the house boom of 2013/2014. It reminds me of being young, tasting my first sips of wine, and letting loose on a dancefloor. It evokes the feeling of bliss from dancing with your friends and just letting the night soak over you. This is it.

I'm going to speed to my love interest's house right now and blast this song from a Boombox so they come to their window and I can confess my feelings for them. This is an absolute evocation of 80s love ballads. One of my absolute favourite singles of the year hands down. The chorus feels like euphoria bubbling in my stomach.

I can definitely feel the the vibe that is Tame Impala if Kevin Parker decided to start singing as an Alto instead of a Mezzo Soprano. This is infectiously poppy in every way and I think I'm going to start humming this to myself every now and then.

I hear banjos and accordions I have to give it praise. I love how the title is a tiny bit deceptive. I thought it was going to be frustrated, vitriolic and angry, but there's an ounce of optimism here with those soft instruments. OH and the harmonica, ugh it's great!

YES AGUNG! I think if a heavyweught boxer hit me with a sudden hook, my face would hurt less than it does while listening to this song. It feels like someone paused time and punched me all over my body multiple times and then reset time and now EVERYTHING ACHES.

Yep ok now this is how you debut a band. You've all sprinted so well out of the gate, it feels like the race is already in your favour. The instrumentals give me a massive emo energy, but the vocals are so much more subdued, it creates a really interesting mix of moods. Subcult are the best.

Let's just say I was not expecting that absolutely engrossing genre shift around the 15 second mark. This reminds me of the optimistic, hopeful and star-gazing indie pop for the early 2010s. It just overflows with a lovely, happy feeling. You're on my radar now, Isla!

This is such an epic, grand scale for you Hope. I'm not sure if this was intentional with the title, or a pun associated with your name, but this track is just brimming with a glowing sense of hope, the kind you feel setting out for an early flight on a big holiday. This is tops, well done.

This is such a delicate, and fragile piece I'm worried if I move too much I might break it. The use of flute was a really nice touch that added to this song's peaceful feeling. This literally feels like a patchwork made out of brittle cotton candy, well done!
