Society In Song

I should be happily doing homework but I love you all more. Good Shoes is my new favourite band. Notice I spell favourite correctly, as would Good Shoes because they're from the United Kingdom.

The group is straight indie-pop but definitely in the more traditional sense of the term. Read 1980's male sitting in a pub. It may be hard to escape the Futureheads comparison, but they bring an honest reinvention of the style. I'm familiar with the structure, yet it's new to my ears.

Morden, a city in the UK is also the title of their newest single, being released in June on Brille Records.

Is the spelling a jab at our new American friends?
