Reliably informed

Instantly likeable, with its shuffly-shoed, droopy-shouldered, dangly-armed bounce, this is the kind of song that makes you long for Polaroid cameras and college dorm days listening to Smashing Pumpkins. With lyrics like “I know this feeling / I know this song” and “Though I’ve never been / My favourite place is a café in Berlin”, Wild Spelks sing on behalf of a world fantasising about being somewhere else.

The song embodies the high-pitched sigh of someone staring out of their window, half-here and half-not, half given-up and half-not. The lovely post-chorus guitar glistens with hope and resolve, providing the perfect soundtrack to anyone who’s currently dreaming of their own Berlin, or, at this point, anyone who’d be happy enough to just make it to a café.

Released: 26.02.21
