By Los Campesinos!
I’ve been listening and re-listening to the new album by Los Campesinos! “Romance is Boring” a lot lately. It’s not because I think that it’s particularly amazing, only that I’m trying to decide my opinion of it. They sort of remind me of what Bloc Party could have become if they had decided to stick with the sound that they started off with on “Silent Alarm” instead of challenging themselves to evolve their sound. That’s not to take anything away from Los Campesinos! only that the songs are occasionally too poppy or whiney to really have an impact. Regardless, this song is quite powerful. And the video is subtle but fantastic. It’s very personal and combined with the song, makes you feel as if you are actually there, taking part in these actions.
