Taken from the album Paperback Ghosts, Comet Gain’s new single “'Sad Love' and Other Short Stories” is a classic upbeat indiepop tune, brimming with melody and slathered in chiming Byrdsian guitars. Over yearning harmonies and keening strings songwriter David Feck muses on a love left behind and what might have been, on a life haunted by memories of unrequited romance.

- Sad Love And Other Short Stories by Comet Gain
We’ve gone and lost the middle thing for the record player so I’ve had to balance the record in the middle of the turntable and hope that it doesn’t wiggle about too much. Luckily the record is a nice summer breeze of a thing. The sort of disc my 18 year old self would have bought and trudged home on the bus to listen to on a rickety turntable. Its all Go-Betweens circa 'Tallulah', plaintive bookish pop with Byrdsian 12 string guitars, wheezing organ and heartfelt strings. Classy stuff indeed. Bands like Comet Gain always have a tendency to go all Northern Soul on our ass and there are hints of this phenomenon on the B side, where they play a tuneful rather shambolic number thats a bit like Belle and Sebastian with their limbs tied together.
