MXYM brings us a raucous, rapturous left-field delight with Worth Remembering. Like stadium rock, pop punk and 80s indie all running outdoors to deliver the finale in a musical, it’s BIG in every aspect: from its straight-to-the-heavens guitar solo to its deliciously grand vocal performance, it makes you feel fifty feet tall just to listen to it.

It’s infectious to hear someone who completely knows and completely likes who they are, and the track is thrillingly alive from start to finish. You can’t help but smile at the twangy beginning and ELO-esque synth voice that follows the first chorus: this is confident, inspired cherry-picking from genres you can’t predict, a refusal to be contained in any one box, and a song you won’t be forgetting any time soon.
