Huge Solange vibes here! I feel like it's a bit Solange meets late 90's early 00's Kylie, which is v cool.

This is probably what the Chili Peppers would've sounded like if they'd opted for weed instead of super hard drugs. I'm not saying Carvel sound like stoners and I'm not saying that hard drugs makes you good or bad. I dunno, I guess what I'm trying to say is that this sound is like a more mellow/laid back version of the Chili Peppers. Maybe the Blue Cool Mild Capsicum...

Maybe I need to be. Cool tune.

I'd love to see them recreate Bruno Mars' video clip to 'The Lazy Song' for this one. Not sure how they'd go with vast difference in sound/tempo but yeah, it's certainly the most energetic way of saying you feel lazy and want to stay in bed.

So many changes as it progresses. It's like that first day of summer when you shave your legs for the first time in months - so silky smooth!

Quite relatable lyrics. I mean, I usually say too much, so people don't want to know me better but I think a lot of people can get quiet when meeting new people.
Subtle Nirvana shout out in there too maybe?

Beautiful vocals here with a really nice sound. Very easy listening.

There's a Milky Chance-y beat with sounds that I can only describe as how I'd envision a soundtrack to the creepy 'Upside Down' world of Stranger Things would sound like (and it's not lost on me that it was created by upsidedownhead), layered on top; with an interesting choice in lyrics to top it all off. It's a masterpiece in the strange. It's made my revie...

Mari Jean's voice is like no one else and at the same time a concoction of Britney, Lana, Katy Steele, Lauren Mayberry, Ellie Goulding and probably others I can't think of RN.

It's pop but there is a grunge to it. Not as poppy pop as say, 'Muki' but I agree with Claire Mooney in that there is a 'Garbage' kind of sound here (note the capital 'G').
Let's make a new sub-genre called garage pop.

Such a cute track. Dark guitars with light vocals. As Barney Gumble would say: "I like it!"

If my mum sounded like this, I'd probably listen to her more often. As someone who doesn't care for chaos, I enjoyed this entirely non-chaotic track.

Wow! What a talent! Great lyrics and an incredible voice. I had no idea from the intro that the song was going to be such a pure country song. Struth mate, this is fair dinkum a ripper of a tune. Top darts.

My god. I just listened to 'Australia' and I really wasn't prepared for this. So you have insane versatility. I'm looking forward to your R'n'B/Hip hop song next or perhaps your death metal offering. Who knows? But I really can't wait to find out *rubs hands together in a kind of creepy but mainly enthusiastic way*.

Geez I slept on this. Thanks to the PachiSquid for the heads up. I just feel as though Lorde would dig this sound and in a dream world, Tkay would lend a verse in a future collab. I'm an instant fan.

A kind of Dunies meets Circa Waves type sound. Can definitely hear the Fidlar influence in there also. They've managed to bottle that pub rock energy on this track, which just makes you wanna see them live.

Cool laid back track that has a bit of an old Kisschasy feel (cheers Spencer Scott for originally pointing that out) with a dash of influence perhaps from the slower British India tracks like "Blame It All On Me".

Straight away, you can hear the Regina Spektor influence. Wentworth should hit you up if they're looking for a new theme song.

Super strange - I love the confidence in embracing the different here. She's taken risks that have definitely paid off. Sounds a little Flumey in areas also.
