Singled Out: The Company, INC by City of Horses

I’m trying to have an single review out every fri this year.  Today’s choice comes from my buds at Indie Rebellion.

The Pixies meet the They Might Be Giants meets the Violent Femmes, The City of Horses’s songs range from dancey new wave to folky punk.  But this song takes the cake for me.  It’s bouncy guitar and the contrasting vocals are great.  Every guy out there has been a Ben and every girls been a Sally.  Or at least we’ve all wanted to.  Lines like Ben’s commentary about his boss’s opinion of his in-office romance “I don’t care if he’s stern, his new wife is my old intern.”  Fucking spot on.  It’s worth a listen for sure.  Well done, The City of Horses, Well Done.
