Lush arrangement and poetic, but not horribly cumbersome, lyrics make this a song for movement – this is a track to drive to, to walk to, to dance to – but it is also a song for mental movement. It is a track to think to, as well. I actually found myself reminded of bands like The Railway Children; there is an element of that sumptuous mid-eighties New Wave sound represented here – a bit darker, but quite handsomely dressed in the same sort of brilliant guitar melodies and steady, up-tempo undercurrents.
This weeks show features brand new releases in the genres of Indie rock, Post Punk, Synthpop, Electronica and Brit Pop with with exciting new releases from New Order, Stereophonics, Brandon Flowers and more.
I’m excited this week to be able to play the amazing brand new a-ha track. It is fabulous. The rest of the show features a variety of brand new releases spanning Indie Pop, Indie Rock, Synthpop and Dark Wave.
