Some bands and record labels were born to go together, and Cherry Ghost/Heavenly is one of those pairings.
Following in the footsteps of St Etienne and more recently Ed Harcourt and the Magic Numbers, Cherry Ghost offer up cheery, happy and catchy pop tunes that aren't embarrassed to come out to play without trying to change the world.
Radio friendly, commercially successful, they rarely pay more of a debt to Wilco, from whose song Theologians they take their name, than they do on the alt.country sing-along 4am, the latest single to be taken from their recent album Thirst for Romance. If someone in a pub bet you a tenner they came from Bolton rather than Alabama, you'd never take them up on it on the strength of these riffs.
Wistful, beautiful, alt.country at its most sunshiney, this is a little gem of a song that should finally convince anyone who hasn't yet had the sense to buy the album to go and make things right immediately.
If you have, the instrumental version on the b-side is worth getting it again for anyway.
