' Christopher Owens warned us
: A more shiny, polished, but still damaged-as-hell take on vintage pop, aka "Heartbreaker." It's the first song from Broken Dreams Club
, a new six-song EP from Girls due November 22.
Here, then, is the new material about which
performed this song in its first headlining show at the Fillmore a couple weeks back; it sounded good then, and it sounds good now. With a chord progression that could have been taken from half the songs on Album
, but production quality that far exceeds anything on the band's debut, Owens is right when he said this tune could earn radio play. Sure, Owens' voice still sounds a lot like early Elvis Costello, and the haters will still hate his arguably overwrought delivery and maudlin attitude. They're just missing out -- this is beautiful.
