In my mind, The Sundays are better known for the cover of the Rolling Stones’ Wild Horses. Spotify says that this track is more popular.
I didn’t recognize the band name or the song title, but once it started it immediately triggered something. It has that jangly guitar and smooth accented vocals that would later become trademarks of bands like Camera Obscura, and lyrical flourishes reminiscent of the Decemberists.
The rest of the album shares many of the those distinct characteristics as Here’s Where the Story Ends. But unsurprisingly, none are quite as catchy as the most popular song on the album.
