Reverend and the Makers - The Only One

Well here you go; you know where you are with Reverend and the Makers - resolutely upbeat pop overflowing with hooks. Their new single (due on the 10th of March with lengthy tour to accompany) continues the trend, sounding thoroughly positive despite tackling the subject of jealousy - replete with apt Elvis quote - and the terrible truth that it gets no easier with age. A damn fine 80's styled video (touch of the Robert Palmers) directed by photographer Roger Sargent - credits include NME, Mojo and Rolling Stone - simply serves to enhance the air of carefree insouciance contrasting nicely with the paranoid neediness of the lyrics. Their finest single since Heavyweight Champion..? We're saying so.
