Oh Darling

ARTIST / BAND: Oh Darling

SONG (MP3): Shoulda Never

ALBUM: Oh Darling EP

FILE UNDER: Rock / Indie / Pop

LABEL: Nice Records

INFO: This one clicks for me in the chorus, at the end of the second line, when the melody steps slightly down, into that unresolved place, and just stays there (around 1:11). Goes to show yet again that you never know where a hook is coming from, or why. And this sort of thing doesn't happen in a vacuum--the whole reason that unresolved detour sounds so apt is because of everything that's come before it. For a relatively new band, these guys have recorded something that glows with preternatural charm and know-how.
