We checked out Darwin Deez after hearing he (they?) is/are co-headlining the NME Radar tour with our recent favorite Hurts, and found that their music could not sit further away from Hurts within the spectrum of pop. We also found out that this must be super popular in the UK because a quarter million of you have watched this video! It's totally goofy and a little cheeky and that hair/headband/stache combo is something that gives us pause, but this is old school K Records spazz pop at its best: homemade, handclaps and unpolished falsetto. Lovers of quirky love songs will feel this.
