Fruit Bats – When U Love Somebody

Fruit Bats

This is a song of small contradictions, the type that is hard to turn away. Mostly it rolls like an alt country noodle but then there are subtle nuances into indie pop that give it a splendiferous edge. It comes from a 2003 album called ‘Mouthfuls’ from Chicago band Fruit Bats who are sadly defunct since late last year with some of its incumbents moved on permanently, and quite seamlessly one would imagine, to the Shins. With an exhilarating organ drenched opening that is redolent of Sound Team’s ‘Don’t Turn Away’ ‘When U Love Somebody’ quickly slips into a comfortable groove before it dons a welcome shapeshifting motif a little bit further on. Lovely doesn’t come close to sketching in words how good this is. KD
