The Cribs - I'm A Realist

Rating: 4.5/5

Third single from 'Men's needs, Women's Needs, Whatever' and The Cribs seem hell-bent on owning the title of catchiest band in the universe. No, really, any band that can come up with the line “I'm a realist/I'm a romantic/I'm an indecisive/I'm an indecisive piece of shit" deserves awards for nailing it on the head what it means to be young and indie. Add to the mix a chorus that deserves, nay, needs to be sung drunk out of your skull on your Saturday night out and you have a bona-fide anthem on your hands. Hopefully the momentum The Cribs have gained with their brand of pub inspired indie punk-pop they'll manage to find themselves the mainstream success that 'Men's needs, Women's Needs, Whatever' deserves. And if not...well there's always plant pot related KO's to contend with, and if that's left you in the dark then go and watch the video to 'I'm A Realist' NOW. Go on, you know what youtube is, you have no excuse.

Watch the video here too.
