Ooft, this is clean clean CLEAN! Big Matt Corby vibes on this. Also, that guitar oozes with psychedelic funk. Great work!

I love how this spends the first 50 seconds building then suddenly blossoms into this vibrant, dazzling piece of indie rock. It also has some lowkey Beatles vibes which I really really dig. Great work!

Your influences are very clear in the production quality here. That galactic synth is great, lyrically it's fairly catchy and that bassline packs a decent punch (which goes a mile in distinguishing good synthpop). Good work!

For 3 mins and 38 seconds, this floats around in my mind like a dream. Once I awake (it finishes) I claw desperately back to hit the replay button. Eilish, please stop making such damn good music, it's not fair on everyone else. I'm kidding, please keep making indie-pop bangers as you are a star in the making!

Absolutely love this. Filled with a ton of attitude and the instruments have a huge Best Coast vibe. Pity I don't skate because this is what my soundtrack would sound like.

WOW WOW WOW, now this is something special. It's dreamy little chillwave gem with a hint of lo-fi. Great work!

This shines bright from the second it starts. Your vocal is just divine too. Pop isn't my go-to genre but this hooks you in and doesn't let go for the entire 3 minutes and 43 seconds.

Drips with infection, this is an A+ indie jam made for summer. It's already been said but the comparison/ influence of The Jungle Giants is on-point. Really keen to see what the year has in store for you!

One of the last pieces of music I review for the year and damn it's a goodie. The piano is beautiful and your vocals are absolutely breathtaking. With your influences clear, I'm excited to see/ hear where you take things!

I needed to leave a review here before the end of the year as this is a BANGER. 'Cloud 9' was great but to back it up with something so infectious is a triumph to the year you've had. I've found myself saying "how good is Australian music though?!" many many times this year, but murmuring it to myself as I listen to this is both truly exciting and special. One of the most exciting names in Australian music right now and I can't wait to see and hear what you have in store for 2018.

What a dazzling debut. Building a slow-burning, dreamy atmosphere, the vocals are delicate and the synths ooze around the warm guitars. Again, a dazzling and very solid debut!

Aussie hip-hop isn't my go-to genre, but this... this I dig. The beat really compliments the vocal from Lily Richardson of CLEWS and that guitar in the back is great. Nice work!

They are good, but i'm not raving mad about the sounds that surround the verses. But, when the chorus' hit everything just works. It's probably due to the progression as they are slow, but they have an intimate, dreamy flow and the mood that is delivered is great. Great work!

It's groovy, funky and crazy how infectious this is. You can certainly hear the inspiration throughout the song from every single influence you have listed, especially Hiatus Kaiyote, Winston Surfshirt, Badbadnotgood and Jungle. Impressive debut!

Grungy punk with a ton of grit. An anthem for every teen that is made to attend school on a Sunday.

The perfect way to kick off a Monday. From the lyrics to the instrumentals, it's all so heartwarmingly glorious. It's easy breezy indie-folk, what more could ask for!

WOW WOW WOW, I absolutely love this. From those warm, lo-fi guitars to Laura's lush voice, it has a hint of Julia Jacklin amongst it. I look forward to having this on repeat all day.

From the storytelling/ lyrics to the guitars, you can't help but draw comparisions to the likes of Alex Lahey. An anthem full of energy and grit. Nice work!

Smooth and subtly groovy. With big Disclosure vibes on this, it sounds like it would be great perfomed live. Great work!

It's certainly those guitars as this has a bigger alt-country feel to it compared to 'Lover'. With Laura's incredible vocal once again taking centre stage, this is slowmoving indie with a hint of alt-country thrown in. Great work!
