Track Of The Day #172: bentcousin – I Think I Like Your Girlfriend More Than You

London’s bentcousin are 22 year old twin siblings, Amelia and Pat Innit, who were born a decade apart – well Amelia just before midnight on December, 31st, 1989, Pat just after on January 1st, 1990. Their wonderful new EP ‘Everybody’s Got One’ is a quirky suite of delightful boy/girl ditties that a brimful of naive hooky tunes that float somewhere between the indie-pop bittersweet charm of C86 and the anti-folk wittiness of the Moldy Peaches.

Today’s track “I Think I Like Your Girlfriend More Than You” is probably the breeziest slice of ironic pop from this release, all slinky guitar riffs, shuffling rhythms while Amelia mediates on relationship jealousy in a breathily knowing tone, simplistic almost nursery rhymes take on a laugh out loud quality: “you went out drinking when she had the flu/I think I like your girlfriend more than you”.It owes more than a nod to the Postcard records era, when the Innit’s take the stage, Pat plays the passive aggressive, Amelia plays the bossy older sister.

Set for debut on February 19, 2013 on Team Love Records, bentcousin’s Everybody’s Got One is set to be one of the most knowingly novice releases of 2013.
