Arrows Of Eros is a lovely song, all squelches of keyboards, slight percussion and a very eighties feel, without seeming cloying or affected. It is however basically what the Mystery Jets do at their best, and from that point of view, feels like a bit of a swizz. It’s a strange thing that a band can ape a time of long ago, and end up sounding more like something recent, yet even more derivative. Having said all this, if you don’t know Mystery Jets then you can just love the song. Also here is The Shoes remix, which adds nothing whatsoever.
Arrows Of Eros is released by XL Recordings on 15th June
