The first single from this Berlin-based trio is lovely. Some of the lyrics are nonsense (“I gotta do this my way/Coming for you with a heartbeat overdrive”), but there’s chiming, Cocteau Twinsy guitar, Chvrches synths and a hey-ho, yay-yay-yay chorus that sounds like Kate Bush trying to fit her entire career into 30 seconds.
