Languid strummer about fancying your mate's mum, obviously
They’ve had the same themes on for seven years now – Dundee slang, drug references and tales of gutter living. But with ‘Standard’, a new track lobbed onto their greatest hits collection ‘Seven Year Setlist’, The View try a languid folk strummer reminiscent of The Bluebells’ ‘Young At Heart’. Thank God it’s about fancying your mate’s mum.
