Tokyo Trawler Recommendation #12 (27/04/10)

Artist: The Libertines
Don't Look Back into the Sun
Record: Don't Look Back into the Sun (Single, 2003)

Category: A whisky sippin' foot-tapper

One of the things that happens to you after living in Japan for a while, is you begin to appreciate that raw things can, in fact, be palatable*. Unlike a fine slice of fresh sashimi, however, this tune has great longevity*. Deliciously raw, without being too 'retro'*, this sub-3 minute ditty* still sounds fresh, and leaves the listener wishing for an extra minute of the irresistible* melody, sunny lead and outbursts* of drum madness. Lyrically, this song is at odds with* it's upbeat* instrumentals and rather bouncy vocals, with the content perhaps serving as a harbinger* for what was to become of this turbulent* band.

The Tokyo Trawler’s message to the people: A future classic, if it isn't already.
