Somebody Told Me (Single) – The Killers

Label: Lizard King Recordings

Interpol, Duran Duran, Blondie, The Cure? That’s right. The Killers are all these. Sounds unlikely? Not really, Stellastarr* managed this same weird kind of alchemy with their own debut as recently as 2003. And it may come as no surprise to learn that these Vegas boys are supporting the Stellas on their own tour starting at the end of February.

Shouty, robust and sizzling with the same kind of retro hi-hats that make The Rapture so appealing, ‘Somebody Told Me’ is the kind of infectious, vaguely-reminiscent-of-something-else kinda pop tune that may just give Franz Ferdinand a run for their money should it get the necessary kind of wetting-our-pants attention on 6 Radio. Trouble is, it probably won’t get it.
