It's not the bomb.com I was hoping for, but it's good. Maybe a grower.
I hope it's a hit for them!

Oh, and Olly is the sexiest twink ever.

Aw it's certainly underwhelming :(

The chorus really reminds me of another song!

I can't watch Olly gyrating everywhere like some ratchet ho.

Not sure what everyone else is hearing, just listened back to Communion and this sounds much better than alot of the tracks from it...it might not be a King or Desire, but those are like tracks an artists gets once in their discographies :P

I missed the rainbow signal for this, but I'm here now, and I'm loving it! Such a bop! Love the video! They're picking up right where they left off with "Meteorite".

Oh, but I can! I don't think I ever realised how attractive he is! :oops:
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

This isn't a particularly instant song, but the chorus is hooky and I'm enjoying it. It's not quite as light and as poppy as some of their earlier singles ('King', 'Desire', 'Take Shelter'), which I think is what they needed to come back with after being out of the spotlight for so long. The video is incredibly accomplished, and I'm all for Olly's gyrating. Serve it, King. 8-)

^ underperforming, as it doesn't have that much support from Spotify.

It's currently #20 on UK iTunes and #67 on German iTunes, the only Top100s in 'main' countries, while #45 on UK Spotify & #71 on Irish Spotify.

Meh. I guess the real banger will come later on, I really don't want them to have a sophomore slump.

Yesssss. It's been on repeat for days. I love it, cannot wait for the album, apparently it's called Palo Santo.

I find Sanctify to be a bit "meh" on first listen.

Hopefully it grows on me!

How is this pretentious?
It's a normal pop song, hardly a Björkian experimentation.

I did like it, actually. The video is great and I love the chorus. But nothing they released so far ever touched Memo imo

Fam......... This is such internalised misogyny. Why is everything feminine bad? Having feminine gay men be seen as attractive and successful does wonders for teens who feel not masculine enough.
