Modesty Blaise - I Love You

Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk

Summery indiepop anyone? It's that time of year, and with the weather we've had recently just about any song can sound full of sunshine and light, so when you stumble upon one that's written to be all sunshine and light anyway, well that just doubles the effect. Bristol band Modesty Blaise are no newcomers to all of this of course, so they know that releasing a single of this nature at this time of year means it will fulfill its optimum potential, and that it does, with a cheery and slightly silly video to run alongside it.

It's a shame that in a twenty year career these guys are still relative unknowns, so we'd suggest spreading the word about this melody-filled and joyous track as far and wide as you can. 'I Love You' is classic indiepop like they've been making for thirty years, in fact it goes back further, incorporating a little '60s pop here and there too. With bundles of organ to accompany the guitars and overly optimistic vocals it's probably not a tune that will have an extensive shelf-life, so get your fix now. Quick, before it melts!
