There’s only four months until referendum day?!
Are we in, are we out, have we shaken it all about?
Whilst you do the hokey cokey, here are three pop songs that can’t bore you with talk of the economy.
Gold Panda – Time Eater
‘Time Eater’ is his first track to be put out since 2013. In typical fashion, it opens with a classically oriental melody before submerging itself in a hypnotic, ambient drum beat – it is, as ever, really quite delightful.
Lonely The Brave – What If You Fall In
The best rock band in Cambridge (how many are there?), Lonely The Brave, have released the second preview to their forthcoming sophomore album, Things Will Make Sense. ‘What If You Fall In’ appears lighter than the band’s previous single, ‘Black Mire’. Where there’s usually pounding drums and dark-sounding guitars, this single almost feels breezy till the chorus hits.
Lonely The Brave like a big chorus and this is no exception – proper chest out, head back singalong stuff.
Blossoms – Wretched Fate
Blossoms, the best thing to come out of Stockport since they stopped producing hats (probably, I don’t actually know much Stockport history). Despite my poor attempts at compliments, the band are actually on a bit of a roll at the moment with their At Most A Kiss EP knocking Adele off the top of the iTunes album chart – impressive!
‘Wretched Fate’ gives a good acount of how they’ve managed such a feat: playful melodies, dancable rhythms, all played with a certain psycodelic edge that makes will entice you out of the house and onto a dancefloor – as opposed to into your bedroom to sing into a hairbrush (sorry, Adele).
