Song of the Day: Are You Gonna Be My Girl
Today’s song is Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet.
Indie rock (technically Garage rock revival).
A rapid, stylistic song with an infectious pace and a manic groove.
Thoroughly enjoy when the lyrics take central focus with the pauses of silence.
Really makes them stand out from the fantastic instrumentation.
Now you don’t need the money with a face like that, do ya?
The build-up at the end is so satisfying. Just makes the song really stick with you.
The song acts as a solid love-letter to stylized songs before it, with some 60’s Motown elements.
Also, this is from an Australian band, and I never placed that, but now I can’t not hear it.

I’ve talked about hundreds of them, so you’re bound to find something entertaining.
