The Zutons Oh Stacey (Look What you've done) Single

You'd be forgiven if you thought that within the first few bars of this song it was going to be a bright and breezy tune but if you look at The Zutons track record over the past couple of singles which has included unrequited love and a boys painful obsession with a girl, then you won't be surprised that Oh Stacey breaks into a rather sad story of death, drink and depression.

Ok so that doesn't sound such a cheery prospect for a song, but despite the storyline these highly talented and lovable scousers manage to make this track quite a catchy tune with their trademark saxophone hook and upbeat tempo. Dave McCabe now sounds a lot stronger and confident vocally, probably due to the amount of gigs and festivals they've been playing lately. He his voice now has a powerful soul / rock edge rather which helps deliver this angst filled musical fable.
