Here is the irresistible jangle and comforting heart-yanking of My Sad Captains’ debut single.
It’s so simple that it’s probably already been written, but there’s an understated frustration here that certainly hasn’t. For this reason, ‘Bad Decisions’ stands up above its roots in C86 revivalism. Its subtle detailing of disillusionment and dying momentum is lovely, as if Pavement were actually from Crouch End. The B-side, ‘Here and Elsewhere’, is also rather special, with jarring juxtapositions of woodblock and watery guitars doing more than enough to sweetly make us swoon. But go back to the A-side and catch up on what should be the premium indie dancefloor draw for this summer.
