Bomb Track

Pearl Harbor (sic, US innit) consists of two sisters, Piper and Skyler, one of whom – Skyler – is 14 years old. Obviously this shouldn’t be a major talking point for the group – it’s the music, not their age, that counts, music-blog-natch – but come on! Four-fucking-teen! When I was that old I’d only just decided that The Beautiful South weren’t really that hot and that maybe that guy with the funny eye who plays in Stereoface or whatever they’re called is pretty good at writing songs. Whereas she’s writing retro-haunted, Ariel Pink with a dash of shoegaze and a smidgen of synth pop tunes and wailing her guitar over the top of it like she’s Jimmy Page but with braids and braces. Massive anachronistic teen crush. I’m going to spend all my pocket money on Oxy 10 and CK One so she’ll fancy me.

This is a really, really good song.
