Not too bad. Sounds like the last track on the album to me. Nice steady beat though...
I agree. I quite like it. They're quite drastically changing style every album aren't they?
Going from noisy Garage rock to MBV shoegazing to psychedelic synthpop in three albums involves quite big steps.
but you have to stamp your own identity on it. This is a perfectly pleasant song but feels like no more than a pastiche, specifically Simple Minds.
Everything they do sounds like a very mannered, deliberate recreation of something else.
Now even the quality of the people they are copying has declined. Simple Minds for fuck's sake?
And a lot of those labels you mention are great (especially 4AD and Matador).
