Despite the disturbing absence of a question mark in the title, (to be honest, it’s pretty much the reason they’re only getting 4 out of 5) this is a beautifully rousing track which stays with you from the first play.
I love the kind of gorgeous weirdness that the Maccabees possess; weird vocals, weird instruments and weird songs. It all works though – straight from the ringing guitar riff from the start to the almost-faltering-but-never-quite-do vocals throughout.
What the Maccabees lack in appreciation of question marks, they make up for in pop genius.
‘Can You Give It’ is a beautiful track which is out now.
