Fast But Sweet: Valentine’s “Dear Simon”

Sometimes, you don’t need much time to make a good point. Osaka’s Valentine’s need just over a minute and a half to shine on “Dear Simon,” a song they originally made a year ago, but have re-recorded now with a slightly more raw feel (all pretty much in the vocals). In either form, it is a darty bit of rock, so quick that it feels like they don’t have time for a proper chorus. Yet who cares, because the way “Dear Simon” skips ahead, it is catchy enough, and that’s before the final stretch of la la’s. Listen above.
