My iPod #168: The Futureheads – Carnival Kids

There is an official music video for this song somewhere. It’s just not on the internet. I remember watching it on the television too. That’s a shame.

“Carnival Kids” is a track on The Futureheads’ debut album and is sung by rhythm/lead guitarist Ross Millard. It is fast-paced with a lot of vocal harmonies occurring during the verses and sudden stops and starts which make the song very hard to keep up with sometimes.

That’s all fine though. It is the sheer force that all of this is delivered to your eardrums that make the song so infectious and sharp. Plus it has a coda that you will eventually find yourself singing randomly. It is one of those songs that you should really make most of the time of when listening to it, because it is finished before you know it.
