You know that feeling when you're with someone who you generally like, but then they say or do something so embarrassing that you just flinch? Then an awkward silence descends, as you both realise what's happened and neither of you know whether to draw attention to it, or to just gloss over it? Well, that's Blow It Out, The Features most cringe-worthy moment.
The moment when the silence around the table is broken by someone saying they think your mum is "quite fit". The moment when you inadvertently discover a friend's collection of adult videos, the content of which runs to the 'exotic'. Because when Matt Pelham sings "Other times I can be found / somewhere between a pair of huge / speakers pushed by vacuum tubes" I curl up like a drowning spider.
It gets worse: the new-wave-meets-suppin'-whisky charm that The Features demonstrated previously is gone, replaced by an overly polished commercial abomination that could be Weezer on a really bad day. And I don't mean commercial in a pretentious-music-hack way, I mean it in the 'sounds like a advertisement jingle' kind of way. Out of all the album tracks, why pick this as a single? It's baffling really.
