This New She & Him Song is Pretty Great

Posted By on Tue, Feb 23, 2010 at 5:09 PM

We're still a month out from the release of the new She & Him album,Volume Two, but it's starting to look like it'll be every bit as addictive as the first one—and, thankfully, more varied and seemingly a little less gimmicky. First we got the twangy, plodding "In the Sun" (it's a grower, keep listening), and now we get album-opener "Thieves," which is a perfectly executed slice of AM-radio pop, with exceedingly elegant string arrangements and a monster Spector-worthy crescendo. It still doesn't sound like it was made in 2010, but maybe that ain't such a bad thing. Download at Stereogum, also feel free to laugh at M. Ward's ill-conceived facial hair.
