Power beats. Textural synths. Lush harmonies. It's like Disclosure took a seaside holiday.

You can certainly hear the War On Drugs influence with those guitar lines playing off each other so comfortably. Nice shot.

Feels like I'm falling down a rabbit hole with those descending broken chords. Happy to dive into this dreamy soundscape.

What a melodic gem. You've captured a universal feeling we're often afraid to admit to. Thanks for having the guts.

I love a good call-n-response. Packed full of fun and cheek. Air signs just do it better!

I'm on my third listen in a row and can't wipe the stank off my face.

You've taken the flakiness of modern dating and turned it into a tight, infectious pop number. I won't be leaving this on Seen.

A clever, lyrical wit and tongue-in-cheek delivery for some darker themes. I can't wait to hear more.

There's a Super 8, childlike nostalgia about this. You've turned an existential crisis into a lullaby, and it's so effortlessly dreamy.

A slow burner of a track that nods to artists like Alex Cameron and Connan Mockasin. That soaring vocal in the chorus really takes it up a notch.

Layers of delish synth! I'd be keen to hear this stripped back a bit live so your voice can shine through a lil more.

This track is a real vocal showcase. Your range, how you use your breath, the staccato in the verse, the sweeping breakdowns. Excited to hear more.

A sweaty, gritty, expansive work. Can we jump in a time machine so you can perform it in the Big Day Out Boiler Room?

An incredible storyteller. Your voice alone took me on a journey, and I've gone on it 4 times now.

For a song about a relationship breakdown, this has a helluva lot of control and build - until that last note rips it out from underneath you. Breakin' hearts and leaving people wanting more.

I like the reverb and space in this one, the guitar lines and crashing cymbals. You're giving me 'Because of the Times'-era Kings Of Leon and I'm lapping it up.

Yeah look, I'm a year behind on this one - but it just popped up on my playlist and I gotta say; fucking badass. I reckon it'd sit comfortably in a Tarantino film.

A captivating blend of folk and electronic - I love the bass drum that keeps it on track. Keen to see how you strip this back or build it up live.

I dig the instrumentation and layering in this. The guitar plucks, horn section and pitter-pattering drum machine - all builds to just the right amount of tension and leaves you wanting more.
