OFFICE - WOUND UP
"Let's go to the beach tonight with a bottle of wine"
Office are probably the most "indie" band that I've posted on this blog so far. But, they also have a strong pop sensibility that lends their songs an instant appeal. Wound Up inhabits the same genre of jangly summertime pop/rock that the Delays do so well (I'm talking more Faded Seaside Glamour Delays than You See Colours Delays). In this song, it's all about the chorus. It's so gorgeous and has that instant classic singalong sort of feel. Their whole office persona is kind of strange, especially given the joyous nature of their music, but it's also pleasingly different, which is a plus.
