…And then it was 80’s again! But, not in a retro way. This luscious naivety that ‘Never Be You‘ unleashes is the basic element: Immediate but not direct, plain but not simple, melodic but not mellow. Sweat Boys definitely belongs in this very special group of bands, that you keep in a very special closet near your heart. It’s the act (and especially this sublime song) that will make you watch “Electric Dreams” or “The Goonies” and laugh/cry at the same time, rediscover your “jammed” Rubik’s cube once again, get out & switch off the wi-fi/data of your phone and feel the nature or most likely the urban void and even fall in love again with this girl/boy that never stared at you, but you wished he/she did.
For the younger ones, just close your eyes and let this purity aviate you to the stars.
‘Never Be You‘ is taken off upcoming ‘Nervous Prayers‘ (GIVE/TAKE, June 28th).
