White Denim - Pretty Green

Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk


So enamoured were the Texan garage-rock stalwarts with Liam Gallagher's clothing line that they decided to write a song about it. Well, of course they didn't, and if anything they'll probably get sued by the company and forced to change the track title. White Denim have never seemed like the parka wearing types. The guys have announced that in October they'll be releasing their sixth album since 2008's debut, so they're a prolific bunch. To be called 'Corsicana Lemonade', and they're easing us in to their new collection with single 'Pretty Green'.

As is generally the case with White Denim, it's almost impossible to find fault with this song, but, again like their previous work, it's not the most startling of tunes you'll hear all year. If any band could be considered to be consistently very good it would be this one. If they can make the step up to consistently brilliant then Beady Eye will be begging for a support slot. So to summarise, another fine hunk of modern garage that you will definitely enjoy but won't necessarily have the longest shelf-life. That doesn't matter though. They'll be back with more before long.
