Stuart Murdoch’s Cliff Richard meet a Pet Sounds era Brian Wilson with a hint of Ian McCulloch style vocals really give the song a tender feel. The single features mournful lyrics hidden behind the feel good instrumentals that have become a B & S trademark;
“I’m on my empty bed at night the fever grows, is pounding, pounding.
I’d rather be in Tokyo”.
Having completed a near sell-out UK tour, it is clear that the colourful Scottish outfit is, if anything, getting more popular and this latest offering will certainly not slow this trend down.
