Sporting the vocal swagger of Stevie Wonder and an instrumental that competes to be as funky as Jamiroquai, this groovy number is ridiculous amounts of fun. The lyrics even manage to carry some depth – this isn’t some goofy song about an intergalactic bison as I expected, but a sorrowful observation on the struggles of finding love. ‘In this lonely league of love simply wondering what’s wrong with me’ he sighs in the hook, a sentiment that anyone who’s been a dejected singleton at some point can relate to.
‘What the fuck is a kiss anyway?’ Kissing is a bit strange when you think about it - the whole bizarre act of pressing lips together and sharing someone else's saliva. And yet, after time spent apart from your loved one, a kiss can be the most beautiful thing in the world. This breezy indie anthem explores this peculiarity.
WTF is it with all these sweary acronyms? Use real swear words FFS. Melbourne act, Fortunes, deliver this smooth r&b babymaker and OMFG it's heavenly (alright, I'll STFU now).
Even if the percussion is very messy, you’ve got to admire the way in which this dude is able to seamlessly segue smooth jazz sampling into rave stabs.
