Sometimes a song can just make perfect sense. There comes a time when a pretty indie pop song can be exactly what you need to spawn the most wonderful of memories. Don’t believe it? Then check out A Fine Day For Sailing and their absolutely gorgeous album My Baby Loves Pop Music. You have to be heartless to not recollect your finest moments in life while this Exeter, UK-based group jingles and jangles through finely tuned, low-key symphonies.
Though their songs are happy-go-lucky, the content might not always be. And this is exactly the greatest key element to the star track “Honeydew and Fuck You”. It’s a head-bobbing and good-natured track with wonderful spirit, but it’s also a very strong statement to any wrongdoers. They even take cues from Jimmy Stewart when they sample his famous “Lasso around the moon” dialogue from It’s A Wonderful Life on the perfect love ditty “Without You”.
It must be a wonderful life, to be a member of A Fine Day For Sailing. The emergence of such a distinctively optimistic indie pop group is a wonderful find. Their positive spirit shines down heavily on every track of My Baby Loves Pop Music. This is a group that is not afraid to let the world know that it is okay to smile even when the heavens seem to be raining nothing but shit atop of the entire globe. Just think of them as the resistance to recession and natural disaster. They might just teach you to learn to enjoy your life once again.
