8/10 according to on Thu 15 Nov, 2012

Wow, this is properly shameless ‘60s revivalism and make no mistake! All the ingredients are present and correct, jangly shuffle beat, soulful backing vocals, psych-twanging that a harp? This is great, if you’re into bands like the Kinks, the Byrds, even the Monkees, this will really tickle your joy buttons. The drum sound is reminding me a bit of Tame Impala, though the pointedly retro vibes point us in a more See See direction.

On the flip there’s a spooky flute-led number with some Spector-esque touches to the production, it’s not as fun as the A side but it’s a charmingly delivered chunk of ‘60s-worshipping pop nonetheless.

So, what do you think?
