King Midas - West End Boys

“Come on, let's hit the blinding lights"

A few weeks ago Norway's King Midas quietly released Sorry, their latest album, and what could end up being one of the best records of the year. I've heard their sound on Sorry compared to such artists as Roxy Music and the Human League, but with a more contemporary edge. Today I'm posting West End Boys, the group's first single (released in late 2006) from the album. It amazes me that a band can release a pop song this perfect and go practically unnoticed outside of their homeland. Despite being lyrically quite dark (about Nazi Germany, or something like that... I haven't quite deciphered it), the pulsing beat, background chants and chiming bells add up to pure pop perfection. If you like any of the bands I champion on this blog, you'll love King Midas. And, if you like this track, the album is full of similar greatness.
