The Tisburys list many influences and I think they sound like none of them on this single. Maybe they wishfully were hoping they sounded like Joy Division or The Arcade Fire but alas they do not. It is “New Wave” in a way that this sounds like something out of an 80’s movie and the vocals are delivered like something more like Devo. I don’t mind this song the more I listen to it but it certainly does not in any way remind of what the press release thinks it does. In parts it reminds me of some older Spoon stuff mixed with something like Mates of State. Fire your publicist, they have no idea what your going for and why it’s good.
