Lucky Soul — Lips Are Unhappy
Observant readers might remember that this song appeared last year.
I'll put it in again if I want to! It's my blog, and if you don't like it, you can go home!
Oops. Anyway, this gets included in this years list because it's still as ace as it was last Christmas, but more importantly, it was released as a single back in June. So there. If you wanted to attach them to a scene, then it would be UK indie's rediscovery of the Spector sound; with the advent of ProTools, Phil's bag of tricks can be stuffed inside a MacBook (and it leaves the shotgun behind, thankfully enough), thus allowing bands like Lucky Soul to sound spectacular on a smaller budget.
But, enough of the technology! "Shake, shake / shimmy shimmy / shake shake shimmy / Without you!"
is one of the lyrics of the year; for all its preposterousness, it strikes to the core of lost love. In a bouncy, bouncy, bouncy type-of-way, of course!
The band release their debut album The Great Unwanted
next March, while they have a fabulous new single Ain’t Never Been Cool
next month (is that the Be My Baby
drum beat being played on the guitar?)!
Tomorrow, an entirely new song! Promise!
