honestly, my vocabulary isn't big enough to house all the sincere compliments and flattering adjectives that this song and this artist deserves. thank you, Asha.

at the start of this song, I wasn't expected it to build into a Spacey Jane-esque, singalong chorus - but it did just that! and a bedroom-produced song, too? you're ticking many, many boxes of mine, austyn.

those warped guitars reminded me a lot of Still Woozy but your voice has such a strong, dreamy pop hue. it's a colourful mural of indie pop that I'm gassed to hear more of!

consider my mind, officially, melted. and how could I be mad about it when the cause is this giant volcanic eruption of sound?

this has the energy of a song that plays when you're sitting on a rollercoaster, waiting for the ride to begin. it's got big energy but a bit of tension beneath the surface to keep you on your toes.

there's electricity crackling and buzzing throughout the entirety of this track. makes for a track that's impossible to tear your ears away from.

another track to add to the very specific, much-loved genre of 'songs about the past written by still-relatively-young artists'. it's nostalgic and comforting and your voice travels through it with ease.

it's emanating big Clean Bandit vibes with those twinkling, melodic synths and the crystalised pop vocal performance. that "dance with me, all night" line is also one of the catchiest I've heard today.

the medical community have unanimously agreed that the defibrillator is out and cranking 'If You Only Knew Your Way' by The Vultures at top volume is in. heart-starting, earth-rumbling rock 'n' roll.

that hook is so distinct and so memorable! you can hear the silky, lowkey influence of artists like SZA and Kehlani, but Kayla's unique voice is coming through loud and clear.

high-class production value and some self-assured bars to match. it's a really promising debut from NC.N.

if you make it through this song without relating to one of the (many) heart-aching lines, you're not listening hard enough.

is it any wonder that two of the country's premiere music makers crafted this absolute gem? that's a rhetorical question, the answer is 'duh!'. those crisp vocals paired with the robust, layered beats work so well together and when it's all pulled back and slingshotted forward again, the momentum is impossible not to get swept up in.

tbh Apricot Ink could make serious bank lending their intimate, expertly assembled, sparkly singles to a meditation app. every single syllable is delivered with a maximum calming effect.
