She Don't Think So - Loor a los Heroes
The jagged guitar intro sets a scene of faux jollity which is betrayed excellently by the lyrics which reading in isolation seem quite melancholy but here delivered with youthful humour! A double betrayal! This is a clever tool employed by the greats. Being an old fart, I appreciate the fact that the lyrics are actually telling me a story! And it is done with style. Musically it is extremely tight with no heroiocs, simply each part defined and justified. In my opinion just the way it should be.
There are obvious comparisons that can be made about who and what this song reminds you of (cough, Arctic Monkeys!)
That being said being said this track stands up very well in it's own right. I'm hearing lots of similarities to artists such as Buzzcocks, Television, combined with the wit and guile of Billy Bragg.
To make any such comparison is kind of unfair because these guys will undoubtedly carve out their own path.
This certainly falls in to the category of best played as loud as possible and, as I have found today, it is great to drive to as well. Double win.
