The Indelicates - We Hate The Kids

I'm not going to mention the novelty band that this band spring from, because whilst every pop fan in every so called indie club dance to them, something much more original and exciting is happening. This single does for the indie scene what Hunter Thompson did for Aspen Colorado. It's the hidden gem that they are just a bit scared of because not only is it better than what they sell, it attacks the masses so beautifully and subtly that they probably wouldn't even see it, which I think is the point. From the male vocal at the start to the female vocal and the line, "I wanted to subscribe to a higher path, but there is no higher path" and the classic "Absolutely anyone can play the fucking guitar". It is memorable, melodic, it's the truth and it will upset exactly the people it is supposed to, but they won't ever admit that.
