In the Post #7: Defend Moscow – Die Tonight

By on Wednesday, 6th May 2009 at 12:00 pm

Defend Moscow (side)We’ve already covered our love for Defend Moscow here on TGTF before, with their amazing pop that’s more intelligent than your average McFly song.

Time for their second single, “Die Tonight” explores the thoughts that would go through the minds of people informed that a nuclear attack had been launched and certain death was mere minutes away. The B-side isn’t much happier – “Signs of Life” tells the story of sitting beside someone on life support. Who ever said that pop had to be all sunny stories of sex and drugs? That’s not to say that we dislike the tracks, no, far from that – it’s refreshing to be something different to the Katy Perry’s of this world.

Never before did we think that a hook of “and if we run all day we’ll still be far too late / So we know we’re gonna die tonight / The darkness overrides the night” would have such potential, but Defend Moscow do just that with the ace vocals of Jon and Sofie combining to be, well, ace.

Catchy, it’ll have you dancing away like there’s no tomorrow with the buckets of synths, both tracks recalling Depeche Mode, New Order and Brian Eno, but updated to the 00’s.

“Die tonight” comes out on 22nd June on Kids Records. Make sure you get it.
