Naked and The Boys - If You Find Love

Guitar, double bass and drums. It’s referential though – the same sort of watered down folk-pop that brings back memories of summer 2006. Sure, it’s pleasant, but who wants pleasant? ‘If You Find Love’ is radio-friendly “doo doos”. It’s simple catchy dirge.And B-side ‘Tralfalmadore’ is more Kooks than an Urban Outfitters straw hat in the Winter. That delayed guitar, the subtle syncopation… it’s disappointing that the usually more ambitious Young & Lost label have taken a shine to this MOR strum. Maybe it’s the fault of the playlisters that this even exists? Bah humbug.
