alphabeatAlready one of those groups that polarises opinion, I’m hoping Alphabeat haven’t tipped over into ubiquitous loathsomeness on account of that dreadful Diet Coke advert they soundtrack. I can’t tell you how much I hate that fucking ad.

Oh, hang on – yes I can:

“The Spell”, their new single, has a distinct late-80s vibe garnishing a predictably sugar-sweet pop hook. It’s brilliant, and if you don’t like it you deserve to be made to listen to Snow Patrol for the rest of your drearsome days.

    Oh no! What’s happened to them?! This is crap! Her voice sounds funny and it’s all dancey instead of poppy.

    I want the fun poppy-ness back. Rubbish. Humph. Sulking now.

  2. YOU ARE INCORRECT IN YOUR OPINION

    I think you were right when you said it might be a grower. I’m dancing along a little bit in my chair. This makes me happy – I do love Alphabeat so.

    My Chemical Toilet is mostly always right.
