“The Sound Of Summer”

Videos by American Songwriter

“Play and record held down together
Tabs pushed off so you can’t tape over it ever

It can’t be just me that’s working it out
These songs that we’ve chosen And what they’re about

Are we after the same thing? Am I crossing a line?
I’m checking the lyrics, I’m pressing rewind

…These songs won’t see the sun any time soon
Under the cover of headphones and for the privacy of bedrooms

All the best pop songs are girl meets boy
And there wasn’t one song that I didn’t enjoy
But I lacked confidence when I was young
So things didn’t work out the way they get sung”

– Art Brut

Appears on the album “It’s A Bit Complicated.” Listen here.
