Underground Lovers - "Au Pair" (MP3) (PopMatters Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

12 March 2013

From rhythm and melody to voice shredding vocals and bubbling energy, this song is a slice of instant dance/rock perfection.
 

Underground Lovers hail from Australia even though they have often been mistaken for a British band, given that second album was released in the UK ahead of Australia. I get the confusion on an aural level as well, as Underground Lovers’s garagey pop has some serious dancey bass and drum beats. It’s an infectious sound one hears more in British rock than anywhere else. “Au Pair” is a case in point and it’s simply irresistible. From rhythm and melody to voice shredding vocals and bubbling energy, this song is a slice of instant dance/rock perfection. It’s got me sitting on the edge of my seat for the release of the group’s seventh album, Weekend, releasing 16 April (US) and 5 April (Australia) on Australia’s Rubber Records.
