There She Is – Be Like Pablo (reviewed by Dave Franklin)

Infectious is normally a good word for describing such music but here it almost doesn’t seem sufficient to describe the sun-kissed, sugar rush that assaults your ears.

Moog synthesizers, noisy guitars and a healthy dose of nerdy enthusiasm all fall into one end of the mix and out of the other comes a song of such contagion you will need to update your shots after listening. If this is the sound of young Scotland then I’m seriously thinking of packing my bags and heading north.
