Words: Saam Das
I pretty much love Disappearers even with all their arty pretensions - Exhibit A: their blog. I don't care much for that but I do care a lot for a good pop melody. And Disappearers have a wonderful ear for a good pop melody.
I wrote about them back in March and also elevated the "infectiously rich teaser" 'Everything Straight Lies' to #38 in my 2010 Festive Fifty. Which isn't bad going at all. They pointed me in the direction of a couple of new demos in the summer (one of which you can listen to here) but those have "disappeared", only to be replaced by two new offerings.
'Steppenwolf' brings the Belle & Sebastian comparisons back to the fore, while 'Justify Me' has more of a bittersweet thing going on to begin with before succumbing to a string of rousing melodies and harmonies. Songs you can't help but fall a little in love with.
