I missed this song when it came out and am grateful to Simon Reynolds for bigging it up in Retromania. He describes it as “everywhere/everywhen pop [in which] utterly disparate sources cohere to gorgeously rhapsodic effect”.
Definitely a tune to cheer you up after a shitty day.
A shame there’s no official video, so you have to make do with a static image of the Contra album cover.
