MAY's voice goes on for eons, it's so lush and thick and all encompassing.

This tune is like the love child of Moses Sumney marvellous voice and The Pretender's 1994 track I'll Stand By You.

Love the rocky vibe of this tune, it's so great! if you can see this band live I'd highly recommend it, Andy Campbell playing live is like watching a bird in paradise.

Every moment of this tune was a delicate well planned delight, filled with mystery and wonder. The lead vocals hold a raw innocence that leads into some beautiful beyond grace harmonies. Thanks for such an elegant experience.

I love how The Vacant Smiles is able to capture that old school low-fi sound without sounding dated.
This song is rad and fresh AF!

The vocals are on point, super strong and confident AF with the band being a little rough and fresh but, still an interesting tune.

Beyond graceful
I think a lot of people associate vulnerability with frailty and weakness - this proves otherwise. It's beautiful strong and reassuring with the lyrics giving this groovy pop song authenticity and power.

This is the sonic version of a splice icy pole. It's like summer party groove central, with all the tasty parts lifting you higher and higher.

This is like the indie, rock, dreamer, coastal vibe version of Seal's Kissed by A Rose. I know it must seam like the only song I have ever listened to because I reference so much but I can't be the only person that can hear it in this song or am I going mad?!?!

Totally hear that Julia Jacklin vibe in Chitra's voice but, she is less of a dreamer and more of a worldly old soul. Still, SO MANY FEEL with this tune. OMG - it's like a heart seeped in sorrow. There's not light in the darkness but there is definitely beauty and wonder.

I agree with Tommy - definitely expansive. This tune is thick and lush like red velvet cake. There are times where rhythmically it's a bit askew but, I don't think that necessarily takes anything away from this deep and rich landscape of sound.

It took a while for the sax playing over the intro to lock in for me and I think it made this track a little too cheesy for my taste. The vocals are pretty smooth, strong and solid though.

GUS IS THE BEES KNEES.

Love the solid garage rock sound and coastal shoe gaze vocals. They're a little rough around the edges but perfection is not what you want here. It's gnarly attitude and GUS IS ATTITUDE.
