simply cannot flaw this. a completely intoxicating and spellbinding invitation into the wonders of annie hamilton’s mind. it’s got the hypnotism you see in bands like moon duo, with the melodic enchantment that stems from a truly creative spirit. five fricken stars.

the lo-fi production and semi anguished vocals in 'out of here' give this a real nostalgic, 90's touch. i've listened to this three times now and like it more each time, there's something really disarming about this band. kinda hear a bit of 'the beths' in way they tackle the change ups/chorus and that is a truly wonderful thing.

this is effin hot stuff. 'CAUTION' is warped/dizzy in the best kind of way but finds itself grounded by the self-assured swagger of Dante Knows. never made this comparison before, but i reckon fans of Gorillaz would perk up hearing what i just heard.

aodhan's latest captures the restlessness of youth in a really charming light with just the right amount of tenderness. with every release he shows another angle, i know i'm not alone in saying that i love getting to know the different shades of his musical arsenal.

if those strangled guitars are a symptom, the raw vocals are the diagnosis that platonic sex aren't here to tread lightly. a mourning and captivating lo-fi journey from start to finish.
