Stuck in the same loop, this relationship is going nowhere – like “Swings And Roundabouts”.
Brighton’s Jumanji are back with a euphoric indie pop single with a focus on our frustratingly circular affairs.
“I don’t want to fight,” every time we do it’s just the same old repeat, repeat, repeat. When is repeat going to turn concrete in your ears?
Don’t let the bright melodies and glossy vibes fool you – like our own exteriors, “Swings And Roundabouts” exudes bubbly pop while secretly simmering on the inside. An ode to those who won’t listen, I’m sick the seventh time around and feigning smiles through clenched teeth is tiring.
In one ear and out the other.
Instead, I’m going to stop and breathe. Allow myself some straight roads for once – destination unknown. And if you come looking for me, all you’ll find playing in my apartment is “Swings And Roundabouts”. Listen up, maybe these catchy hooks will find anchor between those ears.
