I remember when “Sex on Fire” started getting played everywhere, people tended to be in one of two groups – either bellowing “yeahhhhhhhhhhh the sex is on fireeeeeeeeeee” or saying that it was shit and you needed to listen to KoL’s old stuff. I was in the first group although I never need to hear that song again, it really was played everywhere.
People in the latter group probably won’t be fans of this new song from their next album, Come Around Sundown. It’s got a similar sound to songs on Only by the Night with its soaring guitar melody and roaring chorus. They’ve experimented a little on this track and have a choir on backing vocals – it works really, really well.
