I need more moody queer pop like this in my life! Your voices layer together majestically over the almost industrial and mechanical energy to the track. The word "surviving" pretty much sums up what we all did in 2002, and this song captures the mood of the year for sure.

I was so charmed by this track that I had to go suss the video clip, it's SO endearing. 100/10 recommend. These lyrics are the sweetest, that washed out guitar is SUCH a vibe, I'm in love with everything about this.

Such upbeat indie pop wonderment! I'm sure the lyrics are about something real sad but I'd literally have no idea cos I'm too busy cutting shapes and feeling great. Straight onto my summer playlist - thank!

Every layer here is pure perfection! The piano, the strings, the beat, the ~VIIIIIBE~! Pretty sure Kitsch Kitchen is gonna be awarded a PhD for this track because it is a medical breakthrough in the cure for anxiety. Wrap your ears around this majesty and feel your woes seep away.

If dictionaries could play sounds, this is what the word "serenity" would sound like. I float down a peaceful stream inside my soul whenever I listen to Isadoré.

Is "make-out music" a genre? If it wasn't already, Ash Kennedy has carved it out for us now.

Okay but how is this not on regular rotation by every indie rock DJ across the country!? Smack this in between the Strokes and the Wombats and every single person on the d-floor is gonna lose their mind chanting along to that la-la-la-la moment!

Something about the warmth of this track, and the way it builds and swells, takes me back to my very first festival and the only Big Day Out I ever got to the privilege of attending. It's both anthemic and soulful, and if I close my eyes I can see a sunny afternoon with a festival crowd - arms swaying and voices soaring.

I was gonna flip my coffee table if this song disappointed after opening with a bassline that strong and spicy. I'm happy to report that no coffee tables were harmed in the making of this review.

This started out as such a fun bop and then really hit home with the feels at the end; that was an unexpected but pleasant surprise! You guys sound like you'd be an absolute blast live and I can't wait to get myself to one of your gigs.

That guitar is so sweet! This whole song is so sweet! It would fit right in on a playlist with Mumford & Sons, Of Monsters & Men, and any other music you'd listen to on a picnic rug sipping Pimms in a grassy field surrounded by flowers and bees on a warm spring afternoon.

If I didn't know better, I would have sworn I was listening to an early Powderfinger song! As a huge fan of early Powderfinger, it's a yes from me.

There has never and will never be a funkier song on Unearthed. That's it, you've won. Everyone go home.

Colour me gobsmacked!! This is so huge and anthemic - every time it elevated a notch, my heart grew a little larger, and then I literally just started weeping when that drum came in like a huge Phil Collins 'In The Air Tonight' moment.

Colour me gobsmacked!! This is so huge and anthemic - every time it elevated a notch, my heart grew a little larger, and then I literally just started weeping when that drum came in like a huge Phil Collins 'In The Air Tonight' moment. Goosebumps on my goosebumps! The U2 influence is obvious in the vocals, and it builds and uplifts in the same way as the Potbelleez 2008 banger 'Are You With Me?' just with less of the grimy wubs to it. I'm so so so impressed!

I will absolutely never say no to some spooky 80s energy - this would fit right in on the Stranger Things soundtrack. The bass, the synthy aura, that chorus! And the longer I listened, the more there was to fall in love with. I think for every minute I listened to this, it gained another half star. I started out at 3.5 and I'm THAT damn close to giving it a 5!

I was absolutely spellbound by the opening 30 seconds. I really love the moody and brooding sound the Restless Tides are capturing. This is one of those songs that teenage me would have saved to have a cry to on a bus one rainy day when I wanted to feel like I was in a film clip.

The hypnotic layering of sounds here is so captivating! So quintessentially alt 90s - it sounds like it came straight off the Buffy soundtrack from some scene at the Bronze - I'm sure Angel is brooding in the background somewhere while Buffy slowly dances with another guy.
