This one floats.. I like the concept and anytime you're breaking it down the middle with some clicks you've got me. Love the atmosphere surrounding your voice on this one, gives it a cloudy, airy sensation.

Stir it up cause this is international, defs has that West Coast impression. "Confident" tears thru like a Comeback track but TASMAN has gone nowhere and won't be anytime soon with tracks like this.

Stunning effort, a true testament here; Proof of what's possible when talented artists at their sharpest work together to turn something around in less than a week is impressive to say the least. Everything balances out like the perfect day, kicked off by a gorgeous Sunrise. Serving facts but mostly hope.

Echoing Nkechi's review here; This is BIG Glow Up Energy and your golden. Here for the clicks, claps, community cookout vibe of it all. It's brimming full of positive radiance channelling the early 90's RNB girl group sounds we all know and love mixed in with some Corinne Bailey Rae and Laura Mvula.

This creeps up and zips round the corners of your dome like a grimy rap bop I can get around. The sweet vocals in the middle really break up the bold angsty bars and both compliment each other well.

This hits the spot, like a warm memory from someone you used to crush on. Lands like a 90's feel-good theme song to a film I prolly watched too many times way back. Big song will have everyone singin along.

This feels like a triumph will for sure be on the festival favourites playlists in the near future. "Talk Too Much" would marry well with a sunny day, cutting shapes on a grassy dance floor.

Gives me the "Let's Wait Awhile" throwback vibe but reverse the intent. A sheer stand-out in this genre I've heard in a little while. The brood, the candles, balmy nights. You've cooked a feast for the R&B minds.

This is really intriguing and kicks up a notch like a rowdy Tiny Dancer. If half of Pete Townsend morphed into early parts of Bjork that would almost encapsulate the feels I'm getting.
