Wow! This is a 2020 vibe check for me personally. wow! Even more so being in quarantine. I love how this song just explores so many elements of music.

Wow! This is a 2020 vibe check for me personally. wow! Even more so being in quarantine. I love how this song just explores so many elements of music. It's pop yet folky and just has you endlessly heartbroken from how blunt and truthful this song hits. I feel like it combines the best combinations of what people love about the intimacy of Elliot Smith, but gives it a new perspective and haircut to more poppier elements that just let you fall into the clouds and make the world rain with tears. Also that instrumental that takes this song home is incredible. It's so effortlessly gorgeous and I'm wow genuinely mind blown and inspired. Love this!!

I've been playing during quarantine as my morning aerobics and it's been the best hehe. This song makes me feel like I'm falling in the tornado of a fairy floss machine, especially with that chorus and twinkling melody. Also the 'WE KNOW' Oh my goodness. Genuine moment of triumph, motivation and just gives me such an uplifting feeling. I feel like this song just bookmarks the definition of Cry Club and their ability to be unpredictable in their music, but also give you a whole lot of RELATABLE. It's the sparkly truth everyone. The ultimate dynamic of charisma, sincerity and hard truths in pop music and I love it.

Um.. so like can someone please feature this song in like a teen drama show or a Blue Water High remake pretty please?!! This song is so beautifully cruisey and I love how it kind of shows a darker romantic side to you guys musically. Also I love how this song showcases the beautiful connection you all have in your harmonies, there's something so warm that has me blushing!

I think my favourite thing about Bakers has always been 'ENERGY' has always been there, but there's also something so captivating and angsty with the chorus' that just feel so relatable, almost like a full stop with bratty attitude to a bad situation/break up and you can hear it in this song.

I think my favourite thing about Bakers has always been 'ENERGY' has always been there, but there's also something so captivating and angsty with the chorus' that just feel so relatable, almost like a full stop with bratty attitude to a bad situation/break up and you can hear it in this song. It's a thrill ride with a large chorus, but it's almost like a 'Shout Out to my Ex' anthem but pop punky.

Dam this is beautiful and bouncy! It kind of brings a beautiful fusion of artists like 'Mansionair' but with a sort of intimate Bon iver Rnb aesthetic. I feel like I'm floating in an emotional waiting room day dream and just dissolving into the cloudy lo-fi acoustic guitars with your beautiful voice just snuggling my soul!

Heyo! Favourite song of 2020 check!!!! Seriously though, I don't even know where to begin with this song. I've had this continuously on repeat all year so far and I could not be more grateful for a song that just continues to inspire my days. Everything from the beautiful pacing of this song to how the vocals just caress the production is so magical and has you endlessly falling apart. Overall, this song combines the best combinations of everything I'm obsessed with timeless pop music.. It's like if Robyn and Lana Del Rey/Weyes Blood had musical children while listening to lots of Dark 80s synth pop. It would be this band. Obsessed with you and thank you for your music. You're my eternal crush.

I've been waiting for this song for almost a year, seen it live 3 times, rewatched videos on my phone and it was so dam worth the wait!! Everything about this is unapologetically romantic and I'm living for this to be on my dream rom com soundtrack. The vocals are so intimate and the production is so euphoric, simple yet bold and beautiful. If you could look up the definition of "Glow Up' you'd be given a link to the song and FEEL LIKE YOU'RE GLOWING!! I'm not kidding this song makes me feel pretty. This song just draws rainbows, pink hearts and makes me send a billion heart reacts.

It makes me feel like I'm racing for love but also surfacing to the realisation of self love. My favourite thing about Johnny Hunter, I've always said 'one of the most charismatic, passionate, powerful vocals I've heard.' There's something about the vocals that are just so bold and I love that we're hearing a more of a vulnerable side to you guys even though this song doesn't hold back on passion. ITS A HIT FOR ME!! Dear Producers of Stranger Things!! ADD THIS SONG TO YOUR SHOW!!!! PLEASE!!

I love how the hook leaves you in such a suspense. It leaves such a spacial, show stopping impression and leaves your heart skipping a beat.

Everytime I listen to this song I think of Knuckles from Sonic the Hedgehog training in a secret fight club. That hook is incredible, it just preaches BRUTALITY. I love how it's kinda punk influence almost similar to Royal Blood in the verses, but with a Parkway Drive punch in the stomach in the chorus. BREAK!! Also, random side note. I really want to see this in like an anime fight scene...

Being a kid with allergies growing up. This reminds me alot of the joyful reaction when I first had ice-cream cake. There's just such a vibrant uplifting energy that makes me want to SWERRVE in a pair of roller skates while throwing confetti. The harmonies are just radiating sunshine and I just felt like I was being spun into the dance circle. All aboard GROOVE CENTRAL STATION
