More Pop from Saint Etienne
There’s a pulsating electronic vibe that brings the latest Saint Etienne jam to your ears. The songs title owes a debt to both the Loft and Creation Records, but in the realm of pop, it’s the songs emotional pull that ultimately wins. Sarah Cracknell has sort of a smoky tone in her performance, though she seeps into the dreamy tones during the end of various lines, as well as during the chorus. I love how the group is taking on commonplace issues, such as the narrator missing out on the growing up of one’s children; it goes in line with what appears to be the overt message from Home Counties…there’s art and beauty in everything that surrounds us, no matter what that is. Look for the new LP on June 2nd via Heavenly Recordings.
