Count In My Head is Kids Love Lies debut single. On the title track Ellen’s vocals can be a little Kate Nash at times but the song is spirited enough to pull it off. It’s a nimble little number, all cowbell, shuffling rhythms and jerking movements. This may make it sound like any other band nowadays, but think of those things being used in a good, fun way with little care for success and you’ll be near to their sound. Fight Face continues the same formula, but with diminishing returns, while Perfection in its Acoustic Mix works pretty well. It sounds like some weird, wired folksters cranking out their psychosis. Cracking yelps too.
Count In My Head is out on Cherryade Records on 13th April
