There is little more fleeting yet memorable about youthful pre/early-teen romance for someone my age than a 1980s roller skating rink. London band Still Corners capitalizes on this nostalgia in their new video for “Berlin Lovers” off their forthcoming Sub Pop LP, Strange Pleasures.
I wrote about the song after it first debuted at the beginning of last month, stating the following:
The song maintains the haunting nature Still Corners excels at creating. Itâ€™s foggy, dark and slightly moody… To compare â€œBerlin Loversâ€ to Still Cornersâ€™ debut, the song is on par with that albumâ€™s high points, perhaps even topping them.
I definitely dig the heavier, more melodic beats that accompany both this song and “Fireflies”, the first song to debut off Strange Corners. They’re more on par with what we heard last year by Purity Ring than Still Corners’ debut.
The new album is out May 7.
