‘"The band shines when their perceptive songwriting marries with their penchant for catchy guitar riffs. ‘Shampoo Bottles’ is a perfect testament to this fusion, as it portrays the material aftermath of a break-up. From the “crumb of fancy soap” to the “organic hoo hah” that clutters the narrator’s place (and conscious), the song functions almost as the spiritual successor of John Mayer’s ‘Still Feel Like Your Man’. It’s a touching portrayal, and lead songwriter Neil Smith does an excellent job balancing the bitterness of him criticising his ex’s leftovers with the more sobering reality of what that means.

Figure 8’ is a picturesque song both in its lyricism and its sound, being gorgeously gauzy and almost impressionistic in its poetry. “Watch her as she pirouettes, watch her figure 8 with that style,” Smith sings dreamily.

Peach Pit also shine when they’re given colourful characters to play with. “I haven’t left my room in days, even though you might think I might want to,” Smith drones on ‘Camilla, I’m At Home’. Whilst the melody could have been stronger, this song is excellent in creating a sense of distanced intimacy, combined with its lax drum beat perfectly accompanying the track. ‘Black Licorice’ is another excellent exploration of being a burden to your friends, using the perfect metaphor of black liquorice as a device for feeling unwanted. Coupled with the punchy, wailing guitar riffs, this track is downbeat yet still fun". ( Alex Rigotti 3rd April 2020)
