Simple Science didn't have me convinced but this track does!! The Get Up Kids are BACK, this song just kills in 2 short minutes, catchy as all hell and doesn't sound like a re-hash or combination of previous album's material.
Pretty good but it seems like it needed an extra hook or extra part or something. I guess basically it needed a good/better bridge in there.
It starts out strong (almost with a strokes or franz ferdinand type vibe) and I really like the verse and chorus that are there but it just seems pretty short/incomplete without a recognizable bridge because it's the same parts over and over.
I am very happy to hear they are going after a totally different sound though. This at least has me interested to see what they can do on the rest of the record.
I don't know if anyone wants to like this song more than I do...but I don't. I love everything this band has ever put out, including Simple Science, and I don't mind the indie rock vibe (On A Wire is my favorite album, possibly ever) but this sounds like a Franz Ferdinand b-side with a leftover STWHA chorus thrown on top
