Of all their lead singles to date (Staring at the Sun, Wolf Like Me, Golden Age, Will Do), this one is easily my least favorite. But when you consider how impressive those tracks are, I guess it's not so bad.

Reminds me of Bloc Party.

I'm not the biggest fan of this band (I love individual songs but the albums are always very hit-and-miss for me), but this has to be one of the most amazing TV performances I've seen. I know most of you have seen this already but it deserves to be posted again. Stunning.

To explain furthermore, even though I am frustrated that the albums are so uneven for my taste, the Young Liars EP is pretty fantastic. Blind is a beautiful song that doesn't get mentioned that often.

Oh yeah, I love that Letterman performance. That song is killer live.

They performed this the first time I saw them live.

Was it the faster, guitar-heavy version? I was pretty surprised when I heard that arrangement. Good stuff.

It wasn't any faster, but definitely was guitary. Everything on the Return to Cookie Mountain tour leaned towards a shoegaze type guitar sound, as the Wolf Like Me video you posted shows. Probably why everything they've done has been massively downhill from there for me. The first two albums and eps hit it out of the park for me though.

Can't say the new single hit me too hard, but I'm still confident for the album. Great band.

I find the new song to be really solid and enjoyable. I couldn't really figure out why you all seemed so underwhelmed until I saw the list of their previous lead singles. Compared to those, yeah, this is underwhelming. But, I'm one of the few who really liked their last album, so I'm super optimist and excited.
