Epic and Entrancing

The Guillemots are as crazy as The Flaming Lips, but as epic and ethereal as Arcade Fire; 'Made Up Lovesong #43' springs with eccentric ease from your stereo.

The simplistic elated tune and charmingly playful lyrics, "I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do" make the rush of infectious electronics and bubbling chords all the more effective, while the vocals ring with a touching sincerity. Forget soppy ballads, this is the kind of creative and sweet love song that everyone should hope for; The Guillemots certainly have a special something, which shows up in this beautiful tune. Even the passionate despairing cries of Fyfe Dangerfield are melodic and impress upon you the depth and imagination of this song.
