"We are here and we're gone"

The Papercuts return with a new single featuring a brand new song, "White are the waves", backed with a Neighbors remix of "A dictator's lament". Jason Quever doesn't depart from the retro future cosmic fragile pop fever-dream of his latest album ('You can have what you want'), laying the melody out on the most soulful wash of Casio strings, over a simple, drop-dead perfect beat. Quever is as judicious with the guitar as ever, though it still rears its fuzzy head on the bridges and choruses of a song that could have been an AM-radio staple in the mid-'70s.
