On their debut single Grace, Sydney-based four-piece Chinese Takeaway present a dreamy slice of indie-pop listening bliss.

The track begins with a free-time dreamy piano line played by drummer Finn Allen, setting the tone for the entire song. Reminiscent of The Smiths, Chinese Takeaway evoke a sense of nostalgia through their twangy guitars and heartfelt melodies. Vocalist Lauren Towler-Lovell’s voice is a standout as her unique tone echoes throughout the piece, giving off a feeling of utter serenity.

The chorus is hauntingly beautiful and makes for a perfect sing-along, driven by a great sense of rhythm from bassist Luise Martin. The band create another magical moment in the instrumental section where the whimsical vocals intertwine with a beautifully melancholic guitar solo, played by Tim Peterson.
