Wow, here’s something different! A spunky, good-time dose of old-school new wave, sounding like Scandal meets The Cars, that manages to be nostalgic and thoroughly up-to-date.
With a bouncy bass and crackling drums behind him, Flowers, assuming the role of the female in a tale of love gone wrong at - you guessed it, the Elvis wedding chapel - mixes his voices in high and low tenors during the chorus: “Was it something I said I did/ was it something I should’ve kept hid/ if you leave me hanging I don’t know what I’ll do/ it doesn‘t matter who’s wrong or right/ in the clear of the blue moonlight/ you got me on my knees, Valentino this is not like you.”
Things get even peppier and frothier from there, a mix of Farisa keys and chorused-out guitar lines that recall the early days of MTV. Resist at your own peril - you’ll only be proving you’re no fun. No fun at all. Great stuff, this one!
