Fyfe Dangerfield is, of course, the lead singer of that excellent band Guillemots, who I’ve mentioned once or twice before. It’s been a while since we last heard from the band, but as I’ve been distracted by other things, I hadn’t actually thought about that.
Anyway, not that long ago, I heard a seriously catchy song on the radio. The voice had that kind of familiarity to it, but at that time of the morning I couldn’t quite place it until the DJ kindly told me that it was the new solo single from Fyfe Dangerfield. After hearing it a few more times, it got nicely into my head in much the same way as such Guillemot songs as Trains to Brazil and Made-up Love Song #34.
So, I just had to get the album, and I did indeed get it on download as soon as it was available. And you know what? It’s pretty damn good. There are some insanely catchy songs like When You Walk in the Room and Faster than the Setting Sun, but perhaps the best thing on the album is that first track I heard, She Needs Me. Catchier than a very catchy thing at its most contagious and gloriously joyful. Check out the album if you like good songs well performed.
Oh, and if you’re at all worried, apparently there will be a third Guillemots album – they have apparently been working on it.
And, here’s that single:
I’ll skip the usual “here until someone objects” disclaimer, as the video is on Fyfe’s own YouTube account, which presumably means it’s official.
 I only get the shiny round things if there’s something in the package to make it more attractive than digital files.
