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.

There's a hole in my heart that can only be filled by this kind of charming and melancholic indie pop rock. It manages to be sweet and uplifting as well as moody and brooding and that's a majestic combination of feelings. This track is all of that done to absolute perfection!

Your sound feels so completely out of the box! Your use of distortion and an eclectic collection of sound combines together to create something that's truly one of a kind. Keep breaking that mold!

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!

That voice is u n b e l i e v a b l e! Close your eyes and let yourself be taken by this super uplifting, wholesome, and goosebump inducing tune. My soul feels like it's made of sunflowers after listening to this.

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.

The bright and catchy melody on the distorted guitar is completely electrifying! This is some A++ sound right here! It lowkey sounds like something you'd hear on the Sims 2 college rock radio station - and we all know Sims 2 was the greatest game ever so I'm very grateful for that walk down nostalgia lane.

I feel like 20,000 ideas got mashed into one here. I started out thinking I was listening to the next Troye Sivan and I was vibing hard for the first 40 seconds, but then I feel like it lost me; it got a little Disney while also stepping back in time to a 5ive/Backstreet Boys 90s vibe, then there's a rap, then a sunny reggae beat - I couldn't keep up!

I'm so in love with parts of this cos I'm a fiend for sweet and sugary pop, but I feel like it might be trying to do toooo much? Definitely a lot of talent here, and if we could get a teensy bit more cohesion or clarity of vision I'd be shouting about it from a mountain top!

A masterclass in subtlety, restraint, and the beauty that can be found in soft soft wubs.

Huge, unexpected, bonkers in all the right ways. If "delightfully unhinged" were a genre, this would be it.

Heck, what a bop!! A really unique sound here and I'm gonna have it in my head all day. Also that pause before the drop toward the end, that's honestly just so satisfying!
