I'd heard their other two tracks prior to this and didn't think that much of them (although I gave them a few listens since this review and they've grown on me). But this was impressive on first listen and I quickly grew to love it.

It just makes me so happy, love the production, the beat drop and the vocals. Just love it all. I was surprised and thrilled that it managed to make the top 5 as I never expected it would. At this point in time I'll be shocked if it's not #1 for me when I compile my mid-year and it'll probably be up high once EOY comes around.

Edit (22/03/2015):

I got a little sick of it not long after mid-year but it managed to recover and just win the battle of my 2014 EOY #1 with "Keep Me Up". It gets better with time for me and still sounds so amazing and fresh over a year on, starting to get up there with my favourites of the decade. I love how much success this and Peking Duk have had, because it's truly deserved.

Very cool track from Peking Duk - much better than 'The Way You Are'. That drop sounds familiar, but is nonetheless great!

5 --> 6

It's not quite what I was expecting based on the artist/title combo but I still got little from it.

I'm liking it more now.

I've decided that this doesn't count as something as I should irrationally love, mainly because I'm also irrational in the area of spelling. It's better than its more high-profile counterparts but it doesn't overly excite me. 3.5

Edit: Never mind me, liking this more! 4.25

Not bad.
*****
Probably just me but this feels strongly reminiscent of "Midnight City", with the oddly-seeming-to-come-at-the-wrong-time-beats-that-eventually-start-to-make-sense-after-multiple-listens-and-it-becomes-euphoric-and-wonderful thing. While this doesn't have some of the subtle touches which that has, gosh it makes me happy.

Hated it at first but it's growing on me.
******
Very nice indeed!

It's nice to see it clawing it's way up the charts!

EDIT: 5 -----> 6

I really like this and can see it becoming a hit in Europe.
******
Very catchy and infectious. I think Nicole Millar's vocals are very strong and blend well with the beats. Well done and I hope Peking Duk does well with this.
*****
Fresh sound. I was indifferent on this at first, but this has been a grower. A good track to turn up the volume to in the car. 4.7*
EDIT: Upgrade. 5*

Considering all the praise this gets, I expected a lot more. Not a big fan sadly.
*****
It took ages to grow on me but this is an excellent Aussie indie dance track.
***
It's OK I guess.

An absolute cracker that I am so upset I didn't vote for in the Triple J Hottest 100! Peking Duk have done well with this, and Nicole Millar's contribution is superb, her voice is perfect for these types of songs.
