Can definitely hear the influences through this one, particularly Daft Punk. But only if Daft Punk were spending quarantine in Byron and decided to collab with Ocean Alley after a trip to Nimbin. Totally agree with Declan Byrne about the crispness as well. If this song was made of potato it'd be in the form of a crisp. If it was in a Southern Californian gang, the gang would be called ...

What a complementary pairing! Paces' backing serves as a (in their own apt words) 'lofi chill pop' platform, from which Cloe's vocals can shine (not unlike diamonds). If Andy Samberg was their boss, he'd be excited about the synergy.

Ok, so for the first 15 seconds I'm in the Stranger Things' Upside Down dimension. Then suddenly I'm having fun up until 00:41 - when I'm reminded through a slow-building tension that the Upside Down world is still there somewhere looming, before I'm suddenly happy again, maybe because Steve Harrington showed up?? All I know is this song is a stranger thing and I love i...

All I know is this song is a stranger thing and I love it. It definitely demands the listener's attention/interest again and again.

Oh man, vocals sound so much like Passenger - remember that guy that sang that "Let Her Go" song. I love the honesty of the lyrics, especially for someone so young. Keep writing champ! You have all the foundations here.

THIS IS MASSIVE! If music is sport then you just left everyone back in reserve grade.

You're very good at articulating thoughts and feelings and it's hard not to relate to a lot of these sometimes. Another great song from you Tiarnie.

I feel like there could be three distinct songs made out of the elements of this song, or maybe it's like an example of photomontage but for music - if that's a thing. But you've brought them together so well that this would no doubt be the best of the three.

What do I know? This is an insane beat. I love it. There's something sinister and dramatic about it. Super strong debut champ!

Not sure if that '99 Lancer is roadworthy but this song certainly is. I'm also a fan of the brass at the end and you can definitely hear the Kanye influence in the delivery.

Slowing it up a bit with this one but still has that unique Montreals sound to it. Cute song and all but DON'T BE THE PERSON THAT DITCHES THEIR MATES WHEN THEY MEET SOMEONE! ( coming from someone who is always the friend :/ ).

Absolutely love this! Hooked straight-away by the intro beat and remained on the line for the twists and turns this song takes.

You call that two knives? This is Two Knives. You can just tell that these guys would light up the stage like Aurora Borealis at this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the country, but we may not see them because of this dumb virus.

Ooft. I feel personally attacked because you've called me out so hard but even though I should be resisting this, I'm paralyzed by the infectious rhythm (loose Simpsons reference).

Definitely an incredible tune MAY-A, not MAY-B at all. Sorry that was lame. But seriously everything about this song is great: strong lyrics, strong vocals and it's catchy AF.
