This record is number three of seven in the Where It's At Is Where You Are 2014 singles club. Featuring releases by Freschard and The Wave Pictures, The School, Trick Mammoth and My Favourite (amongst some others) it's a beautifully presented seven-step guide to releasing a record.
The Greater Good is a song about tiny moments of connection in a busy city, a bright and busy drone-pop love song for people you’ve never met glimpsed on underground platforms and opposite escalators. Built around a humming Farfisa, stacked guitars and late-for-work drums it hurries along to its happy, one chord finish - an ideal song for the Friday evening commute or for not dancing to whilst thinking about what could have been.
The b-side, Goodbye Four Walls, is a quiet/noisy song for unplanned and unrehearsed expeditions on sunny city streets, preferably flying solo having just bought a good book. Both songs are optimistic odes to city living and will enhance your enjoyment of whichever urban conurbation you happen to be in.
