Was never perticularly convinced by The Mystery Jets in the past but this is their new single and it’s the kind of catchy number that gets lodged deeply inside your brain. They seem to have switched lead vocalist, at least for this song, got their old lead singer to dye and cut his crusty ginger dreadlocks and left the old man from the band out of the video. Record Company pressure? Very possible. But either way, it’s a strong return with a rather excellent video. However, the real revelation for me is Laura Marling. I’ve heard a few of her songs before aand they kind of passed me by, to be honest but her contribution here is fantastic and boosts the song up several notches. There is something sweetly irresistable about her lisply-delivered vocals.
