I don't think 'let it happen' was a true indication of what Currents ended up being like in general.I found Patience a real weird choice for the lead single. They’re coming into what should be their biggest ever year, so I thought they would’ve lead with something more likely to be a Less I Know The Better like hit. While I do like both Patience and Borderline, neither really standout to me as major hits, but then again, The Less I Know The Better wasn’t released before Currents, so who knows what we’ve got coming.
Surely you're being a tad harsh? I honestly don't understand the vitriolic hatred.Amazing to see these early posts, very interesting.
Personally cannot ******* stand them though. They're just repackaging old sounds for a younger set of people. It's basically drug-era Beatles and many bands have done that since and ya know, many did it better and added some of their own flair.
I don't think Kevin Parker is an interesting singer and I really don't think he has anything interesting to say. A private school kid whose dad was minted and now lives in Freo and claims it because it's trendy... songs about feeling crap and girls need to have some tidy turns of phrase and this guy doesn't.
Their massive success in America probably just comes from the landscape. The college kids who go to festivals are more interested in meme music. ****in Mo Bamba is like the national anthem. Drake, electronica. Droney guitars and distant singing sounds different enough and thus the flow-on effect occurs.
Anyway can't wait for the reddit tier herd mentality to chip me about being a sook but I just do not rate them at all.
