Blue and green record exploding into shards

She’s So Clean

Psychemodo are habitual writers of immersing pop songs with sparkling production and a Post-Office-sized queue of hooks. They aren’t about to kick the habit either, as ‘She’s So Clean’ is very much along these lines.

The verse is an ambient ‘Harvest For The World’ with eerie guitars and subdued percussion, but the main bulk of the song is a bouncy jelly of energy, along the lines of T-Rex crossed with Headswim and Coldplay, with big melodies and guitars that could pull fish out of water.

There’s even time for an interesting violin versus guitar solo, which adds a hint of country, but not too much!

Psychemodo have clearly put a whole lot of effort into this song and they’re currently in the process of recording a video to accompany the track. What’s strange about all this cost and effort is that they’re giving up the song rights to the charity that inspired them to write the song, WaterAid!

This track has a slice of genuine chart potential, pop enough to appeal to a wide audience and substantial enough for those of us with more refined taste.
