In my admittedly rather hackneyed opinion, there are few things better in this world than a really good 3-minute pop song. Trendy indie floorfillers might make you tap you feet, but could they lift your spirits? Luckily, Allo Darlin‘ are here to fill that pop-shaped hole in your lives with the fourth single from their (quite lovely) self-titled debut long-player. ‘My Heart is a Drummer’ mixes bouncing bass-lines with the twinkling ukelele patterns and charm-laden vocals of singer Elizabeth Morris. For some, the sugar-sweet tweeness might grate, but I for one can’t help but raise a smile at lyrics as lovely as: “You make me feel like apologising for being like this: do I have to say ‘I’m so sorry for my happiness’?”
Pure pop gold.
