Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #22 'Nocturne' by Wild Nothing
I might have mentioned that recreating a certain 80s sound was uppermost in the minds of many bands this year, but who thought someone would want to perfectly recreate the achingly fragile, sweet pop of China Crisis, which make kittens seems like heavy metal types? If you want to swoon amidst pale fountains, mist, smashing champagne glasses, and wildly-dyed asymetric hair cuts, look to Wild Nothing, whose sound is so 80s it hurts. I love this song. It makes me feel 16 again. Okay, 14. "You can have me" is just the sort of androgynous passivity that so many of the bands of the time toyed with, if only to entice, to endear.
