Siiiiiick! I don't actually think I've ever heard a fusion of garage rock with psychedelia quite like this before. I'm big on the keys in this track, and the rolling bass puts me in mind of a few tracks off one of the greatest albums of all time (it's Dookie, just fyi). That's a rad combination of sounds I never knew I needed to hear!

HOW ARE YOU THIS TALENTED AT 14? I'm so about young emerging talent from my hometown! I was not expecting the funky fresh vibe that came in with the keys, I'm loving it!

I actually never thought I'd hear a certified pop banger tackle such an important issue with this level of nuance and grace. On the first listen, I just thought this was a fun and bouncy self-deprecating pop tune, but then I really listened and it seemed to be shining a light on alcoholism, so I googled it and it turns out that is exactly her intent with the song.

I actually never thought I'd hear a certified pop banger tackle such an important issue with this level of nuance and grace. On the first listen, I just thought this was a fun and bouncy self-deprecating pop tune, but then I really listened and it seemed to be shining a light on alcoholism, so I googled it and it turns out that is exactly her intent with the song. This hits close to home for me, and I can't tell you what it means to hear a young person openly speaking about it through their music. I think it's an issue a lot of young people are facing in silence, it's so ingrained in our culture, and music like this creates a platform for people to be able to talk about it. Thank you for this incredible song, merci, mercy!

Feel-good synthy pop is always gonna get me, but this is truly an exceptional standout in the genre! The vocals are INCREDIBLE, it's like if Bastille made feel-good tunes. I have had this on repeat all morning; cannot get enough!

Damnnn Ella that's a powerful voice! Do you have two mums called Florence Welch and Amy Lee, cos you sound like their lovechild and it's MAJESTIC. Such a beautifully haunting tune.

I had the privilege of seeing Soft Power live last night, and it was honestly SO magical! The guitar in this track gives me some Paper Kites energy, but with a soft and dreamy lo-fi brilliance to it. I was transfixed watching him perform it and I'm officially a fan!

Maaaate! There is SO much depth and maturity to this song, and I know everyone's remarking about how impressive this is for your age but I hope you don't take that as a negative because your music is outrageously impressive for ANY age!

Every element to this song is pure magic: that voice, the strings, and absolutely had to give this the full five stars after that piano - it got me!

When I hear music that sounds like it's giving me a hug, I just wanna hug it right back. Such beautiful soft vibes, and I am liiiiving for the gentle piano and the clicky beat.

I've loved every track I've heard from these guys, such a unique voice and they seem to tick off a different genre with each song, yet they still all sound cohesive when lined up together. This track has so much energy and takes some surprising turns!

I'm such a sucker for some dreamy, synthy pop fantasy - and this is that at its finest!

Hot damn, 20 seconds in and that sax got me hoooooked! This song feels like some 80s-psychedelic-ska-blues infusion, and I'm 100/10 certain it would GO OFF live cos it's already going off on my bedroom dancefloor.

The most amount of chill that has ever been fit into one song. The soothe is real!

I love a song that takes surprising turns as it builds! That bassy opening sets the tone for the song so well, and then we're hit with an 80s synth moment before the song turns for a spookier and heavier vibe, and all the transitions are so smooth and feel so natural that I genuinely cannot believe this has come from a 14 year old?! Wowza Holly! I can't wait to hear more from you.

Oh my feelings! Not sure if mercury is in retrograde or if this is the most beautiful song ever written? I was feeling some Big Cry Energy coming at me from the first time his voice soars, and it definitely got me as this song builds with so many beautiful layers.
