Random 30 2013: Capital Cities - Farrah Fawcett Hair

I generally take music pretty seriously. You may (or may not) have noticed (ahem). But every now and then something catchy and irresistible comes along which is clearly not supposed to be taken too seriously. And we all love a good laugh, right?

The LA-based duo Capital Cities is well versed in writing catchy pop hooks; in a past life, prior to the release of this year’s debut album In a Tidal Wave of Mystery, these guys made a good living as commercial jingle writers ... one listen to the duo’s novelty track ‘Farrah Fawcett Hair’ and that much is immediately obvious.

The retro-flavoured ‘Farrah Fawcett Hair’ features a guest appearance from Outkast’s Andre 3000, and there is something quite contagious about its hook-laden delivery and highly amusing lyrics ... it’s good shit, as they say ...
