Alex and the Closet Straights crew bring the charm once again and it's all tricked out with a unfussed and warm recording.

I expected this to be a pretty in-the-pocket bit of Melbourne jangle, and in a lot of ways it is. In a lot of other ways though, this is is more experimental - and I love the textures you've thrown in. That zippy monosynth after the chorus is, to borrow a lyric, "A OK" by me.

I really rate Alex's abilities as a songwriter and singer and now with this refocussed sound for Closet Straights he's taken on a charismatic frontman vibe which really just confirms everything I thought.

Some lovely Aussie jangle right here. A warm and friendly number. Loving those harmonies.

Such an interesting song Closet Straights! You should be proud of this one, "hiding fruit in the VCR player" doesn't get better than that! :)
