.imp – “Pull Me Over” // Maria Sarbova

There’s something quintessentially English about “Pull Me Over,” and it’s not just the reference to drinking gin. It’s the way the lines tumble out of .imp’s mouth that’s reminiscent of Lennon’s proto-rapping in “I Am The Walrus”. It’s the gloomy organ in the background that brings out the grayness of London rain. And it’s the same counter-culture proselytizing that brought us punk and British new wave.

But the best part is that none of these things are necessary to appreciate the boom-bap of the drums, the thudding groove of the bass, and the sheer sing-along-ability of the chorus. Lighters in the air, folks.
