Halfway through I realised there were another 4 minutes to go but at no point of this lengthy upload could I turn it off.
Dying to know what you'll produce with a vocalist on site.

Dom I feel like you were meant to be one of the great musicians of the 80's/90's but somewhere along the path your timeline was delayed and you accidentally rocked up to release music in 2018 instead.

OOF this is some raw garage punk I can get around. That repetitive hum really drives the song forward. And the claps! There’s so much to discover in 3 mins 12 I’ll be pressing repeat a few times after this listen for sure.

If anyone’s wondering a list of my top favorite debut EPs of 2018, this song is the title track to one of them. There's a nostalgic, cinematic feel with everything you release and the addition of strings here is a brilliant, polishing move. I can't wait to see you not only pack out Brisbane tonight, but play this song to thousands in the years to come. I'm personally not a fan ...

This song builds to everything I wanted it to and more. I'm hearing a bit of Billie Eilish in your tone, tinges of Eves Karydas in the delivery, but the most prominent note is your big bright future ahead. Impressive first offering. Stellie is a voice to watch!

I've been playing this for a couple of weeks now, but I just wanted to pop back to say this is one of my favourite uploads to Unearthed as of late. I love your fun breakdown at the 50 second mark that contradicts to the lyrics, and how it just grows together in complimentary fashion from there on out. HYWASAY deserves a heartbreaking spot in the next ROMCOM series I binge on Netflix.

Here's an extremely fresh twist on old school RnB. I'm so glad Young Franco put you on my radar! I'm so down for you.

No one does psych tones and grimy guitar chords like Cactus Band does! Holy hell you guys just get better and better with each single.
Please excuse me while I give my friends and fam 24hrs notice to call me by my name change - Susie.

You throw so much into this track, but it just WORKS! I haven't been able to get this chorus out of my head for the past week and frankly, I don't want to. I love the way you pull it back right before a triumphant ending. Donnarumma freaking rules.

Samsaruh - GIRL - you ALWAYS pack an absolute punch in such effortless fashion! You're an incredibly empowering force and I'm so glad you're kicking around the scene to inspire gals that need a little kick of front-woman confidence. The Beginning is just another addition to the list of strong anthems you nail so perfectly.

I almost screamed when I saw you guys had new music. Almost, being halfway into forming a noise I realised I was in a crowded supermarket.
The hint of jazz brought to the table with Zac's sax, along with this fast paced jive gives you the most infectious energy - which I can imagine is off the charts live, but it's also evident right here! 2:31 is FIRE.
