Default Shins sounding like The Smiths

on the new album, particularly on the track "Australia." Now, I'm not suggesting that the vocals sound like morrissey or the guitar like Johnny's.
But if you had Morrissey singing and about 13 more layers of guitar, this song could easily fit in on a later smiths album, musically and lyrically.


And tell me these lyrics couldn't have come form Moz himself:

"Ah, I feel like I should just cry,
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin,
You don't know how long I've been,
Watching the lantern dim,
Starved of oxygen,
So give me your hand,
And let's jump out the window"

It's quite good, as is "Phantom Limb" and "Turn on me."

The biggest thing they have in common, are their uniquely, melodic voices.

What are people's favourite tracks off of Wincing?

I reckon the absolute best pop track on the album is Australia.

Mmm, Shinny.. I choose Black Wave, purely for it's knack of making me melt into the shape of whatever I'm sat in.

Phantom Limb ahh "And they could float above the grass / In circles if they tried / A latent power I know they hide / To keep some hope alive / That a girl like I could ever try / Could ever try / So we just skirt the hallway sides / A phantom and a fly / Follow the lines and wonder why / There's no connection" mmm.
