New Go Find Video – “It’s Automatic” (Stereogum Premiere)

Oddly enough, the vocal melody in “Everybody Knows It´s Gonna Happen Only Not Tonight” reminds me of Jets To Brazil. Maybe not the first thing to pop to mind when discussing Belgian electro-pop whisperer Dieter Sermeus and his Go Find. The new album, which follows 2007’s Stars On The Wall, also includes a duet with Mintzkov’s Lies Lorquet, “Just A Common Love,” that has a melody reminiscent of NIN’s “Hurt.” In both cases, the echo adds something appealingly familiar to the hook. So far I haven’t found an analog melody for “It’s Automatic,” but maybe something will come to mind while you watch the chirpy track’s playful clip, which was directed and produced by Kurt Marx and the Go Find. At the very least you’ll note the echo of Everybody Knows It’s Gonna Happen Only Not Tonight’s mountainous album art and Sermeus’ ability to handle various instruments at once when not sweeping up after his bandmates.

And here’s “Just A Common Love.”

Everybody Knows It´s Gonna Happen Only Not Tonight is out 2/14 via Morr because the collection’s “a celebration of sincere love.”
