Single Review: The Wave Pictures – Strawberry Cables (Moshi Moshi)
By CMU Editorial | Published on Wednesday 28 October 2009
“Running like a runny egg sandwich” may be one of the more relatable opening lines you’ll hear, and it’s typical of a song so simple and sweet, never looking to change its listener’s life, but to make him or her hum along nicely.
That humming will come naturally too, with the soft melody constant and soothing, playing gently with the acoustic rhythms and very subtle horns that all combine for an overall feeling that can only be described as pleasant. For it is. And anyone who’d think differently must have egg in their ears. Or is just thinking of the word ‘nice’ instead.
Your legs may not be running like that sandwich, but a stroll to the shops to pick up whatever Wave Pictures records you can find wouldn’t be a surprise. TM
