Song of the Week 3/25/11

Bell X1 - "Safer Than Love"

Bell X1 is an Irish band that I've had the pleasure of interviewing on their past two albums. The guys in the band are funny and self-effacing and at the same time serious about their music. "Safer Than Love" is my favorite song on Bloodless Coup, probably because it sounds like it could have been made in 1985. And I mean that in the best way. It's not a kitschy retro tribute. It's a really fantastic song that just so happens to feature a drum machine and keyboard sounds that make me think of having A Flock of Seagulls haircut.
