I want to like this single, it’s produced by Paul Epworth & I think he has a beautiful knack of taking simple instrumentation & turning it into something really special. This single however is so unbelievably yawnsome I’m struggling to describe it. I’ll try, but I’m honestly falling asleep a little: It sounds a bit like an Editors B-side that they decided not to use.
The instrumental version highlights some of the interesting guitar noises Epworth has created, but also how damn dull the song is.
I think I may have had something else to say, but I drifted off for a moment there & now I’ve forgotten. *Yawns*
