WHO BROUGHT YOU DOWN NOW.

There's been no shortage of Aussie love in these pages of late, but Tim & Jean have just rolled up without warning brandishing a massive slice of blissed-out synth-pop that warrants even more Oz-related gushing. Taking the best parts of Passion Pit and Yes Giantess and mixing them up with a healthy does of 90's boy band nostalgia, "Come Around" is a technicolor blast of late-summer euphoria that's guaranteed to put a smile on your face, even as the days roll on towards the inevitable gray of winter. And when you keep in mind dudes are but 18 and 15 years of age (respectively) it becomes clear just how exciting Tim & Jean really are. Thanks to Hyperbole for the tip.

Awesome blog. Bit of a long shot, but any chance of delivering the tracks as a podcast?

the bit that kicks in around 17 seconds is a blatant steal off "I've Got Your Number".

or is it an 'homage'? I'm confused.
