Track of the Day: 'Long Forgotten Boy' by Night Works

'I Tried So Hard' by Night Works was one of my favourite tracks from last year, so I'm really looking forward to their album 'Urban Heat Island', which is out on March 4th. This cut from the album, produced by Joe Mount from Metronomy (who Night Works main man Gabriel Stebbing used to play for), provides a taste of what's to come, and it definitely sounds promising. For some reason the guitar reminds me a bit of XTC, and there are hints of Mount's Metronomy in there as well, and over all this is an assured, slightly 80s-tinged, melancholic pop song. Have a listen below.
