  1. Fuck! Yes!

    I wondered what these people were doing. So damn happy to know that they’ve got new material on the way.

    I dig this song, too. Quite a lot after a second listen. The two part coda kicks some arse. But damn if that isn’t the most “up” thing I’ve ever heard from them. Definitely moving away (a little bit, on this track anyway) from the dark, Bauhaus, Siouxsie and The Banshees sound of their earlier stuff. In fact, this is one of the first songs I’ve heard from them where I don’t hear any Siouxsie in her voice at all.

  2. Whoa, despite the name this sounds significantly less full of doom than any of their other stuff. It’ll be interesting to see how this record sounds…

  3. Ya know, I’ve listened to it several times now, and read the lyrics to the chorus at the beginning of the song. Truthfully, it ain’t all that bright and shiny. It’s not as full of doom as their other stuff, for sure, but it’s not really sunshine and rainbows, either.

  4. eh? what happened? i miss her old voice
