Grafton Primary – ‘Relativity’ (mp3)
Grafton Primary are brothers Josh and Ben Garden from Sydney. Their previous track ‘Hidden Cycle’ rotated on lots of radio playlists round about last year. They’ve since recorded an album due to be out soon titled 2020 vision. ‘Relativity’ is so 80s in instrumentation, arrangement and lyrics I almost tuned the radio out, until it reached the bizzarely catchy hook of ‘we equal m c squared..’ ??? I can’t explain it but it’s a hook that would have worked twenty, thirty years ago, and thanks to the current music scene’s obsessions with 80s beats and synths is now working today.
This song reminds me of a childhood favourite:
Thomas Dolby – ‘She Blinded Me With Science’
