your pipes are so undeniably floaty, but the grounded songwriting keep it down to earth. seriously dazzling stuff, Jacqui!

this is REALLY great, Local Safari! plenty of cathartic moments, the guitar solo and those soaring vocals - tick, tick, freakin' tick.

what pay off this song has! the build is steady and sophisticated with heartfelt pop songwriting that any Taylor/Olivia Rodrigo fan would adore.

dreamy vocals that remind me a whole heap of Andy Bull - especially when the falsetto harmonies float by. such a stellar introduction, Coco Elise!

the comparison you've drawn to Sofi Tukker is so apt. the chemistry between you both is electric and that energy is felt in every second of this pulsating club heater.

holy sh*t, Adam. that final chorus (and honestly, this song as a whole) is your best work yet.

very glad that Dec referenced Grouplove - I couldn't agree more. the vocals are colourful and nostalgic and backed by a full guitar-driven rush that's primed and ready for a festival stage.

there's no doubt about it: Moktar is one of the best emerging music makers in Aus rn and 'Lemon' is proof (not that we needed more after the beauty of 'Silk'). this is expansive, celebratory and just a joy to witness.

this song makes me feel like I could do a kickflip. have I ever even had the desire to do a kickflip? not once in twenty-two years, but I still think I could do one right now because of the fuel and strength this LOSER track provided and that's what matters.

completely enchanted (as always!) by the melodic patterns being so carefully sewn within this stripped-back serve from smol fish. they're experts at the stuff.

though Jack's vocal delivery may feel like a rambling train of thought, he's a lyrical sharpshooter. pull out any line of this song at random and you'll find wisdom and relatability every single time.

every single upload from Telescreen is ready and raring to soundtrack a glittery coming of age indie film. the shine doesn't detract from the charm that's exploding from every pocket of this synth-led dazzler.
