Single Review – Everything Everything – Regret

Upbeat and unbelievably catchy, Everything Everything’s latest single Regret is already engrained in my head after just a couple of listens. This track is a fantastic pop hit destined for copious radio play, and yet there’s far more to it than plain old pop. A little Police-esque reggae injection, some psychedelic guitar in the middle break, a punchy rock drumbeat and a lovely Mancunian falsetto from lead vocalist Johnathan Higgs makes this a song that simply can’t be defined to a specific genre. Much like their 2013 hit ‘Kemosabe’, ‘Regret’ demands listen after addictive listen. Now please excuse me as I spend the rest of my day shouting “Regret, regret”.
