The Loves – Sweet Sister Delia

The title track of the new single from The Loves is fantastically infectious; in the way the Pooh Sticks used to channel sixties bubblegum pop. The chorus repeats the title over and over, sometimes doubling up the word sweet in a joyous chant, in a way that reminds me of something I can’t quite put my finger on. There’s also a ropey 4 track demo of Low from 2001, of which you can see why it hasn’t seen the light of day before, and a faux country number credited to Simon Love and the Turkeys called God Saves Our Souls, a drawled redneck piece of cheese. Worth it for the lead track though.

Sweet Sister Delia is out now on Fortuna Pop!
