Pretty good.

I could go a little bit further in either direction depending on where they're from, you know what I mean?

I like this song well enough. It was sent to me by a friend who was listening to the radio and heard it and sent me a link immediately to see what I thought.
We had the same idea - that the lyrics seem to almost intentionally try to resemble Cate Le Bon(who we both love) and the song was nice enough but that the video made us want to grind them face down in gravel.
I am going to explore a bit further but I should avoid all visual representations of them at all costs.

You mean like if they were from Ilkley?

Probably!

And especially like if they're from Brooklyn.

And not like if they're from Basildon.

Apparently they have a penchant for dystopian folk, abstract poeticism and Motorik rhythms so I can hazard a guess that from Basildon they are NOT.

It's ok and a pleasant enough listen, but kind of unremarkable - i'm not really tempted to dig deeper just on the evidence of that song.

I like it.

It's maybe a bit too reminiscent of its influences, but since I like that stuff I can't complain that much.

Thanks for posting!

Dunno about that..If you'd just substituted electronica for folk, that'd be a pretty good description of Depeche Mode!
