Single Review: Blonde Louis – Midnight Kiss

I sometimes wonder if people can spot that I’m a sucker for well-made pop from miles away. If this is true, it should have been a foregone conclusion to you all that I would love Blonde Louis. They’re a band from Hertfordshire I wrote a Bands to Watch feature on back in the summer; at the time I was giving props to their song ‘Sleep on the Floor’ (not to be confused with the Postelles‘ excellent ‘Sleep on the Dance Floor’).

Now the young quartet are releasing a new single, ‘Midnight Kiss’, on Monday (25 October), and this time they’ve thrown synths into the mix. (FYI, I’m the same woman who was called out on a certain 6music presenter’s programme 2 years ago as “the sucker for the synth”.) So stick a fork in me, I’m done. This is fab. Unlike some of their contemporaries, they’ve actually written a song that has a good, memorable, pop hook, good lyrics, and guitar work that just makes you feel good all over. I would even argue it has anti-ageing properties, because it made me feel 14 again.
