It's So Nice When It's Something that you like

Admittedly I don't know much about Hurrah! but i do love their song Around and Around that appears on the CD86 compilation that came out a few years back marking the 20th anniversary of C86. I've been listening to it a lot recently, actually. This song sounds like it's going to be like any other generic jangly indiepop number, that is until 38 seconds in when the drums break down to that awesome primal beat and the bass rumbles and purrs so sinisterly while an almost feather like, other-worldly glistening guitar is strummed so delicately until it goes somewhere else completely different, and then...back - Hairs stand on end. There is something else going on here.

Maybe i don't want to know anymore; maybe i just don't need to know anymore...

Look at this cool made for TV video which appeared on The Tube when i was but a twinkle in my father's eye.
