THREE OF A KIND – “Babycakes”

A Summer gets the anthems it deserves. And this humble, cloudy weather fits “Babycakes” so well – the sudden return of Garage, but shyer, more tentative, and much more tender. Twee-step? The title points me that way, and the way the song has the couple explaining their feelings, quietly asserting that yes, this is real, and the way the music bubbles so evocatively (was it really only five years ago that – ?). Use when: walking hand in hand in the drizzle; feeding the ducks.
