This is such a gem of a song. I have had it stuck in my head for the past few days, so it made sense to write about it here!
Pelicat are an Indie pop band from Norway. Although I was quite sure they were American when I first heard them, due to their overall sound.
'The Other Side' was written and recorded during the 'Lockdown' and is such a perfect and happy song, it provides much needed joy. Although it is musically upbeat, it is quite sad lyrically, about a complicated relationship.
The sound has hints of the 60s (The Beach Boys) in the harmonies, and also more modern vibes of The Shins.
I'm not too familiar with their previous work but their song 'Tell Me I'm Wrong' from last years self titled album also stood out for me. Another marvelous pop song and very catchy.
'The Other Side' could well end up as one of my songs of the year. Highly recommended.
