There’s always been a place in my heart for little, tiny two minute pop songs. They cut the crap and never give themselves the chance to disappoint and, in a very welcome coincidence, they give me less to write about which is perfect because i’m actually a lot more hungover than I realised and as such can’t really be fucked to write much. This is becoming a worrying trend as I think maybe 4 of my last 5 articles have contained at least 100 words alluding for my journalistic laziness as each article is beginning to include far more information on my mental state that any music; Eventually each post is just going to become a 200 word personal journal entry with an attached soundcloud link…
But yeah right music!
Endless Drain by Major Leagues is a perfectly formed 2 minute Wavves-esque pop romp which is continuing to prove that Australia are much better at this than anyone else (See Dune Rats). The verses contain a memorably simple romantic sentiment delivered in a voice that sounds like a female version of Ex-Yuck singer Daniel Blumberg, gloriously bratty but never offensively sharp. The songs chorus builds up a slightly fuller, dreamier soundscape that sounds a bit like something off Big Deal’s latest offering which eventually gives way into a slower delivery of the verse hook. They’ve managed to cram everything you’d want from a song into this appetizer and I’m definitely looking forward to the main course (along with some more woefully unfunny food analogies like that one).
