Crystal Fighters latest single “Love Natural” is instantly familiar to a lot of folks that might normally not be aware of the group because of FIFA 14. I have probably heard this track somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 or 40 times – and that was before the video was sent over. It takes a special kind of song to be listenable that number of times without making you want to drill your temples with a DeWALT, so in short “Love Natural” hits that rare sweet spot of pop goodness with staying power. Cave Rave, the album that features “Love Natural”, does this in general, really.
This video for the single ain’t half bad either. We witness boyhood infatuation in all it’s glory. It’s the best and worst day of young Mr. Natural’s life, and by the end of it all I could think (as a father of two young boys myself) was this: “You are going to be in such big trouble, mister!”
If you were hanging with Norman Feller in his (imaginary) bunker to avoid Y2K the last fourteen years (which is seemingly the only reason you haven’t already picked up Cave Rave), you should probably click this link and grab the album. It’s also available on iTunes.
