Talk about storming out of the blocks: at this early stage in their career, Urso Polar are really delivering the goods. Following “Mostly Harmless” and “Oh My God I’m So Happy Right Now”, “It’s Official I Hate Ramsgate” is their third release of a spectacular few months.
It might seem strange for a Brazilian indie-rock group to be singing about a Kentish seaside town, but don’t get distracted for too long by that quirky detail – instead be sure to let the energy take you and the lyric charm you, and the mix of jangling and chiming guitars win your heart. It shouldn’t be too hard, frankly, because “It’s Official I Hate Ramsgate” is another glorious indie disco whirl from Urso Polar.
The Atlantic Ocean’s between you and me
And all of this water will tear us apart
We settled the score, I’m fine with a draw
I knew you were not my type from the start
So I can’t complain
Even if I did you wouldn’t hear me
You’re so unkind
I’m telling you know, so you best believe it
This is about how I came
To hate Ramsgate
This is how, this is how I came
To love you
