“We love this band” – Henry Rollins

“Melodic as fuck” – Indie Shuffle

“It comes with high expectations, almost three years after Summer Flake’s much-lauded debut, You Can Have It All. And I am happy to say it will blow most of those expectations out of the water.” The Saturday Paper

“Australia is blessed with some truly stunning and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters – and Hello Friends is proof that Summer Flake is the cream of the crop” – Sonic Masala

“it’s easy to tell Stephanie Crase is one of the sickest guitarists in the country.” – Beat

““Shoot And Score” reaches its abrupt ending, it leaves you wanting more. “Shoot and score, take what’s yours,” Crase sings, perhaps forecasting her group’s inevitable rise to prominence.” Stereogum

“I say it almost every time I have to write about a new song of hers, but Steph Crase really is a genius.” – Blerg

“you’ll hear meticulous, effortless sounding harmonies, shimmering but restrained lead guitar and a knack for melody that can’t be taught.” – Double J

“Flake slows the pace down to emulate a lazy, twangy rhythm, places her distorted chords front-and-center, and layers her easy vocals to create a lush, summer-into-fall anthem.” – SPIN

“The maudlin song titles belie the strength of songwriting on show.” – The Music

Track Name: Shoot and Score

I got everything I wanted
I got nothing I didn't deserve
I went looking for a haunting
I got my mind made in reverse

Shoot and score
Take what's yours
Look 'round your world, what a curator
Make it something you can finish later

Hello friends
It's been a while since I looked you up
The same again?
Write down what I said but start it from the end
Was I happier back then?
Track Name: Wine Won't Wash Away

Who could live like that?

Does anybody think that they've got it all figured by new years day?
I know you thought that
Can somebody who loved you properly make up their mind to just turn you away?
I know you thought that

Now my head is rolling down the street
You're falling through the door
Wild and waving, you're misbehaving
You're hot then cold then storms

Who could live like that?

Rhyme without a reason
Wine won't wash away my feelings
What doesn't kill you makes you wonder
If it isn't sunshine is it thunder?

Throwing away the guilt I'd saved I don't regret a thing
I spent some time in the back of your mind and now i can finally see

I could live like that
