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. The beat shift around the minute and a half mark was not expected at all either. You've weaponized rap, I would absolutely cut lo...

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.

this is such an emotional and sudden sound shift for you guys! it has massive Bloc Party energy to it but you completely make it your own. the build up in this song had me tenser than any Netflix murder mystery drama.

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.

Haters say No Way, Big Skeez says Yes Way. This track's beat is going to be rattling around in my head for days. This is fantastic.

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!

There's a gloomy feeling bubbling under this track. I think I'm going to stand back a little bit in case the track explodes on me. It feels like this track could take a nose dive in a random direction at any point.

You're wearing your production influences on your sleeve with that Pharrell-esque 4 beat count in. This sounds like bottled Valentine's Day; it's dripping with romance and love. I think this song is making me realise love is real.

One of your most hair-raising, face-melting tracks yet! The song seems to be dripping with confusion as we both can’t really seem to figure out what’s going on - I’m happy to be ignorantly blissful if this song’s playing.

Fresh pop-dance warm straight out of the oven right here! The chorus really took me by surprise. When the song mutated from a slow piano ballad into a strong dance beat, I was blown away. Feels like one of Banks' best hits!

The leap in quality from Lo-Fi to this is just so astounding Tamara honestly. You've come into your own so much. This is a song that I desperately want to dance to live. I can imagine a whole dancefloor being filled with people boogieing to this song. You've outdone yourself.

This song has my jaw on the floor. You sound like a band already so in touch with your sound and who you are. This is like Two Door Cinema Club in their heyday with an extra sense of epic scale.

The depth in production of this song is what makes it instantly loveable. It's so layered both in how creative the production is, but how much lyrics are fit between the beats too. You are poets both in the way you string words together and in how you weave music beautifully.

I am so in love with your songwriting Nat! It's just song to song perfection. This song has a such a serene mood I wish I could bottle up and save for a rainy day.

The chorus hook is so catchy, I'll probably be humming it to myself for the next couple of days. What a great start!
