my newest pop crush, 2
I’ve written about Allo Darlin’ before. And I’m sure I will again. But this song, everything about this song, the frame of reference that I can so relate to, the mentions of Bondi Beach and St Kilda and Talulah Gosh and The Maytals, the helplessness in the girl’s voice as she realises she’s singing about a future that can’t be foretold, the callow nostalgia, the mandolin, the minimal drumbeat…
Have a listen.
I know the song starts halfway through. It doesn’t matter.
