End Of The World
'End of the World' is the first single to get a full release from DFA's latest signings, Shocking Pinks' (aka Nick Harte) self-titled debut album, following a string of limited edition 7" and 12"s released over the last few weeks.
A melancholy jolt of pure pop bliss, it rushes by in less than 3 minutes. The song evolves from a wobbly drum break into a tension building, colourful combination of over-saturated acoustic guitars and swirling synths. 'End of the World' is an edgy, fragile-as-gossamer and heartbreaking appeal to an estranged lover.
It's one of the most personal, heart-on-sleeve moments on the Shocking Pinks' album, and a perfect route in to one of the most beautiful and emotionally manic records you will hear all year.
The cd/12" formats feature brand new b-side 'Go To Sleep', plus remixes of the track by Deerhunter and Eluvium.
