Listen: Suede - It Starts And Ends With You [New Single]

In my review of 'Barriers', I suspected Suede may be saving a more anthemic, poppy song for their first single and 'It Starts and Ends With You' is certainly that. With Britpop enjoying a cultural revival, exemplified by Pulp's appearance on 'The Jonathan Ross Show', it feels perfectly timed and the single wouldn't sound out of place on a 'Shine' compilation.

It's difficult to think of another band, love it or hate it, who'd have the chutzpah to include the metaphor "like a hairline crack in a radiator leaking life". It's quintessentially British and if Suede's aim with 'It Starts And Ends With You' was to, borrow a phrase from the Manics', achieve "mass communication", this should achieve it. March 18, the release date of new album 'Bloodsports', can't come soon enough.
