Album: Belong, 2011
Justification: I fell in love with this song the second I saw them at the Laneway Festival earlier this year. They rock so much harder live than you’d think, given their charming dream pop, or nu-gaze, or whatever the young people are calling what I still and will forever call shoegaze because dammit, that’s what it’s called.
It hits me right in my sweet spot: sweet little melody, chugging Krautrock beat and a genius lyric in “She was the heart in your heartbreak / She was the miss in your mistake”. Now that, friends, is a lyric. I think I need to see the treatment for this clip written down, though, because it doesn’t seem to be relevant to the song at first glance.
I really wish I’d seen their sideshow. It clashed with two other gigs, though, and I was already rushing between them. Damned if I can remember what they were, though.
SONG YOU SHOULD HAVE REDISCOVERED THIS TIME IN 2010 and or 2011: There wasn’t a damn one. What the hell was I doing? Anyway, here’s the 2011 archive, which consists of one other song. But it’s a great one.
AND HERE’S THE LAST FIVE…
