SONG OF THE SUMMER ALERT
Lordy lord. What is this? I loved the first two Arcade Fire albums so hard, and then seemed to go right up their fundaments, becoming more pompous and boring and alt-stadium rock with every release.
So count me astonished that this seems to have come out of nowhere. And what is this they’re channelling? Why, it’s surely a touch of ABBA’s Dancing Queen? Dancing Queen with a huge existenial lyric, a bit of nose flute and a giant choir?
YES FUCKING PLEASE.
This will piss off the rock purists so badly.
This makes me so happy.
I’ve listened to this 25 times in the past week.
NOTE TO ALL BANDS: Find your inner Agnetha and Annifrid, and all will be well.
My day feels like this today…
This song is a bot marmite, but I’m loving it at the moment!
It’s a tie between Big Thief and Cigarettes After Sex as my favourite tunesmiths of the moment. This is so laid back that it’s almost horizontal and has that effortless cool feel, no more so than in the chorus.
This is for your headphones..
I can’t get enough of this track…
