If it’s scuzzy but irresistible indie pop your after today, then look no further than ‘I really like it’, the new track from Brighton’s Our Girl, out now via Cannibal Hymns. It was written by frontwoman Soph Nathan, who says of the track “It’s one of our newest songs. I was initially quite nervous to share it because it feels quite different to the others. I’d never written about love in this way before. It has the inevitable moments of craziness and longing that can come with falling in love, but mainly it’s just a really happy song.
It’s trips along with this certain coyness in the words ‘I really like it, I really like you’ sings Nathan as if she can’t look at the subject for fear of going red. It has all the ingrediants of perfect indie pop, increasingly scuzzy guitars, drums that can only hold it in for so long and a chorus that stamps itself on your memory banks.
