Jesus this chick can bloody rap! Had to Google what 'steez' meant but yeah, with the realisation that I'm no longer up with what is now, 'it'; is the realisation that I want to be. Hoodzy, you're on your way!

Not sure if there is line in there about a church calling out someone for being a cunt but that'd be a nice change of pace. This track is awesome fun!

Damn this track doesn't know what it wants to be and I like that it kept its options open. I don't actually have synesthesia but this song is definitely full of colour.

Such a swell little track. There's a very slight Mallratty element in there and a broken flow that at times is akin to that of SZA; but the sound is distinctly imbi. The lyrics have an interesting give and take - a few lines will be heavy/offer massive insight into what imbi is feeling and why; and then the next line will be a throwaway, almost like, "Oh shit. I've said too muc...

The lyrics have an interesting give and take - a few lines will be heavy/offer massive insight into what imbi is feeling and why; and then the next line will be a throwaway, almost like, "Oh shit. I've said too much there, here let's talk about this!". Example, "One night I thought I lost my pen." followed by, "One time I thought this was the end. This feeling surely overwhelms." Or maybe I've thought too much here. Um. Dogs are cute. This song = good. C ya.

What even is this? I think this is raw poetry over some minimal background beats, which are actually super well done in themselves - I love the way they subtly evolve throughout the song and let the lyrics do the talking.

It is unbelievable how little has progressed since the 'Sorry'. I'm glad that artists like yourself are getting the message out there in a way that the youth will hear. Agree with Declan regarding the "I wasn't even there mate, how am I to blame" voice. You do the bogan voice so well haha; but then you throw it right back at 'em. Good stuff.

Well I certainly wasn't expecting this when I hit play. Tell me this isn't catchy AF. I think they'd be fun to see live.

I love the merging of old and new here. The chant / call & response sound mixed with just super tight bloody production. Then you've got the depth brought by Tasman and the smooth flow of Birdz, how could this not be a winner?

As if you'd keep walking if Tones And I was busking near you! If she's gonna keep busking, she needs to first buy an EFTPOS machine so that chumps like myself who don't carry cash can tap and pay.

Wow, throwing rap atop the absolutely beautiful piano is definitely your point of difference. Very heartfelt lyrics too. I can't wait to see where you go from here!

There are so many subtle elements to this track and the saxophone(?) towards the end is just *does the kiss fingers gesture*! The slow building intensity is so well done, it stirs up a similar type of emotion that I get when I listen to Bon Iver's "22 (Over Soon)".

I totally agree with Tommy Faith - what is this sorcery? Jimblah's flow almost doesn't flow, but then it does? Kind of like that sentence. It's disjointed so it keeps you on your toes, and I like that.

Powerful and clever songwriting, but we've come to expect that from you. "It's a privilege to have our ties", brilliant. I can't believe the song is three years old!

Damn this beat really feels like it could belong to someone as polished as Felix Snow and then there are those velvety vocals. No wonder he's not over you, poor bloke didn't stand a chance.

Super distinct beat fronted by a super unique voice but the song's only 2 bloody minutes long! I'll just have to hit repeat I guess.

There's a definite vocal similarity to Missy Higgins. I love the transition around the halfway mark too - for some reason I just picture you headbanging while singing the lyric, "and I'll try not to cry". Both devastating and kick-arse. If I ever get a boyfriend and then we break up, I can see this being my anthem.

Came for the super honest title, stayed for the beauty of the cohesion between lyric and sound.
