Say Sue Me: Old Town – Single review
Say Sue Me
Louder than War’s Ioan Humphreys falls head over heals with more insanely catchy indie from Say Sue Me.
Old Town is the first single taken from Say Sue Me’s forthcoming second album ‘‘Where We Were Together’’ and was released on 9 February 2018. Recorded in Seoul, this indie rock/pop four piece from Busan, South Korea have featured in LTW before, and have yet again produced an insanely catchy single filled with hooks and layers that draw one in and smothers you in hugs.
A gorgeous riff and insistent drum beat runs throughout the track. This band remind me so much of Pavement and this latest single, has beautiful echoes of Box Elder. Yet, the song comes from traumatic beginnings and is full of sadness and longing for a time and place no longer possible.
Elegant chord changes and Sumi Choi’s ethereal vocal delivery make this song an instant classic, and coming from such a young band, who know what is to come from their debut album.
Play this single to death and catch Say Sue Me on tour as soon as possible. Great stuff!
