Ooberman : Blossoms falling

Ooberman’s curious clamber to the pinnacle of pop’s Mount Parnassus renders most of the competition irrelevant this week.

Don’t worry if you weren’t one of the 10,000 who bought their ‘Shorley Wall’ EP, because this is infinitely superior. With ‘Blossom’s Falling’ they have encapsulated the splendour of a thousand summers in a song so sugary sweet and tearfully bitter that it threatens to rend the fabric of the universe asunder. It’s all-out attack from the first minute, sloping in on a raft of minor chords and Danny Popplewell’s plaintive vocals before thrusting up towards a chorus so glorious that you barely notice that it, erm, sounds a bit like The Lightning Seeds.

Totally ace nonetheless.
