"What It's Worth" by The Ocean Party
We previously have mentioned that Melbourne's The Ocean Party is, in our opinion, one of the best guitar pop bands in the world. And in case you doubt us, we have another argument in support of our position. Here to pleasure your ears is "What It's Worth", the band's new single. The song, which is taken from their soon to be released new album, The Oddfellows' Hall, begins with soft keys and a single voice, but then expands with additional voices, an infectious beat, and a luscious slide guitar. Great sounds, reflective lyrics -- it is easily one of the finest songs we've heard this year. Play it, repeat. Play it, repeat. There is your morning sorted out.
The Oddfellows' Hall is out on November 9 via Spunk Records (Australia) and Emotional Response Records (US).
