FUNK/SOUL/RETRO/POP. Solid Aussie band with two very powerful lead vocalists, listed below. Many tracks feature a "big" sound -- echo, horns, constant organ or strings in background. Some decent use of synth in the background. Almost all medium speed. Check out tracks 4, 5, 10.
A: Kylie Auldist - more soulful, bluesy voice
E: Ella Thompson - pure, pretty voice

1. *** (3:30) E "Impatient" feel? Echo-ey. Eerie.
2. *** (3:26) E Cute bass line. Fairly pop-ish. Sassy.
3. ** (3:43) A Kinda punchy beat. Need more cowbell! Soulful.
4. ***** (4:10) E Rolling beat, smooth. Energy. Great chorus. Pop-ish. By far my favorite track.
5. **** (4:12) A Strings playing throughout in background.
6. *** (4:19) E Pop 4-chord progress. slower. Slow-dance-y. Slow fade-out.
7. *** (5:32) A Upbeat. Organ solo. Repeated vocal line. Epic sound.
8. *** (4:33) E Almost The Doors feel… But with very different vocal.
9. *** (4:34) A Very rock. Drums enter 1:25.
10. **** (5:14) A Medium-slow. Upbeat. Fun chorus. Good bridge towards end
11. (5:29) E Medium. Very mellow.
