The Lottery Winners first crossed my path a couple of years ago, purely as a result of me being in the right place at the right time. For some reason they’s managed to slip my mind until I had a little nudge recently and it didn’t take love at all before my love for them was rekindled.
The way that they set up a rather low-key verse into such an anthemic chorus is sheer joy to listen to and when they mess with that golden element of silence out the back of the first chorus you’re left realising just how much you want this song to continue. Whether the line ‘you are a cow and I am a pig’ is something that hits home to anyone who has seen a relationship fall by the wayside or just a pleasant lyric for anyone with a fondness for the barnyard, there’s probably some way that most of us can identify with the message wrapped inside these words. Yet the words are just a part of this sound as they join forces with guitars that have boundless energy and one of the most enjoyable bass parts I’ve listened to in a very long time indeed to curate a song that’ll leave you feeling completely fulfilled.
This is undoubtedly one of the best slices of guitar pop you’ll hear this year.
