2017 is when weird becomes wonderful.
Everything Everything’s brand of pop music is a mad scientist’s creation. Every time they return, they feel like a band fresh enough to reinvent the wheel. Turn it square, it’ll make it more exciting! ‘Can’t Do’ is no different.
Going from oddball to arms aloft in the space of seconds, it’s all falsetto and unconventional beats. It’s smarter than it seems, and yet happy to play gloriously dumb if required - all the time with a sparkle in its eye. “Can’t do the thing you want,” it pleads, all the time doing exactly that.
Everything Everything know what they’re doing. It’s an art form they’ve perfected. 2017 is when weird becomes wonderful. Stephen Ackroyd
