"As a music blog we get a lot of music sent our way. Like a lot, a lot, and after wading through our 20th Billie Eilish wannabe in a row nothing makes us love music again like a pure slice of power pop goodness. Enter Keith Forde to the rescue. “Sadie” is as perfect as can be and whether you need an auditory reset like we did or just an all around pick me up, it’ll get the job done."
