Packed with fizzing guitars and flitting melodies, the new single from flirting. is built for lazy, sultry afternoons and long summer evenings. Channelling the quirky indie-pop of the late noughties, the track continually dances through different perspectives like a fickle fashionista from swelling emo to scuzzy, soaring almost-shoegaze.
Sharing vocals, Poppy and Andy’s back-and-forth dynamic and vulnerable lyrics update Los Campesinos! for the next generation of hopeless romantics. Cutting through the prevailing pessimism of indie, flirting. are a breath of fresh air.
