Ou Est Le Swimming Pool - Curtain Falls

"Had it been another time, you'd be standing here with me, our hearts entwined"

As many of you probably already know, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool's long-delayed debut album arrives with a certain amount of tragedy. On August 20th of this year, after a string of successful singles, lead singer Charles Haddon committed suicide in Belgium. As it often is with these type of situations, listening to the soon-to-be-released album is a much different experience than it would have been several months ago. This song, in particular, is absolutely achingly difficult to listen to lyrically, but it's grafted to an uplifting synthpop melody that makes the whole thing go down real easy until you poke beneath the surface and let the words hit you. It's just one of those oddly prophetic songs. Luckily, though, Curtain Falls is just one highlight in an album that, for me, is getting better and richer with each listen. I highly recommend it. It's a shame that we won't get another from these guys (at least with the original members).

Such a shame about the lead singer, I saw them supporting la roux a while back and they had bags of potential, it s a solid album, jacksons last stand, the key, and dance the way I feel are my highlights.
