A Girl Like You

by Late TV

/

about

The trials and tribulations of lovelorn romantics, shuffling their way through doomed liaisons have defined the themes of the last 2 Late TV singles: sexual and cultural politics unfolding over a greasy groove in ‘Night Tennis’ followed by emotional self-destruction in the stomping glam-funk of ‘Fools Fools Fools’.

Now the band slide into 2022 with a pumped-up reworking of Edwyn Collins’s legendary ‘A Girl Like You’, an impassioned song of sexual reverance and yearning. References to dirty hands and starlets from a bygone era fit perfectly into the nocturnal aesthetic set-up by the Late TV’s recent output, and this bouncing, disco-esque, jazzed up version is their gift to you on Valentines Day 2022.

Late TV have whipped up a cocktail of influences for their re-visioning of the track. Pouring in electro-funk synthesizers that Daft Punk would have happily sampled, jazz-rock guitar solos leaning dangerously into Santana territory, a dancing melodic funk bass line, and disco strings that were last heard emanating from the cassette deck of a Lamborghini Diablo winding around hills in Jamiroquai’s Cosmic Girl video.
