If you were a fan of their first release ‘Cable TV’, you’ll fall in love with their newest work just as quickly as we did. The indie/pop band have a noticeable pop influence on Like A Balloon, perhaps even more so than on some of their previous work- but don’t be fooled by the upbeat tempo; this track is about having your heart broken.
Lyrics such as; “you were playing with my heart / with your sharpened set of darts / and i’ll pop like a balloon” are the kind of summer breakup anthem girls need to get their hands on right away. Like A Balloon is a must have on your summer playlist- not just because we can all relate to it in some way- but because it’s downright catchy. You’ll be singing along with this Montreal trio in no time at all.
