TV Girl - If You Want It
‘If You Want It’ is an instantly likeable track, sampling ‘power pop’ godfather Todd Rundgren’s ‘Hello It’s Me’. Neon Indian pulled the same move on ‘Deadbeat Summer’ - sampling ‘Izzat Love’ - and similarly TV Girl assemble a new track around a strong melodic loop. The whole feel of the song is distinctly 70s, a welcome change from the amount of 80s and 90s influenced music that has been flooding the internet recently, with fuzzy synths and a springy bassline giving it that retro feel. Lyrically the song is pretty generic focusing on love troubles, but the way in which this is addressed; ‘you only want me when you’re drunk’ adds something comical and new to the song, making it that bit more memorable.
