Tompaulin : It’s A Girl’s World

Boy/girl vocals tell of teenage troubles in northern towns...

They deserve better. They deserve not to have the words ‘Belle’

and ‘Sebastian’ woven into every single review. Especially since this cracking song sees Tompaulin stepping out from under the shadow of their Glaswegian peers. But,

as comparisons go, they’re still

in the neighbourhood, sharing a love for ’60s pop and a knack

for sharp-eyed lyrics. Anyway: boy/girl vocals tell of teenage troubles in northern towns. Incidentally, fact fans, this song

was inspired by a girl the ‘Paulin used to see outside a disco.
