They Might Be Giants’ – "Erase" (Dial-A-Song)

They Might Be Giants’ – "Erase" (Dial-A-Song)

Good to think that ‘Erase’  marks a prolific year for They Might Be Giants with the return of Dial-A-Song and the first ‘Erase’ single, the 52 songs in 52 weeks release schedule, the innovate Grammy-friendly band also start a US Spring Tour just to complicate things a little further, they celebrate Brooklyn and keep the home fires burning with a monthly stand at Music Hall of Williamsburg, beginning with their sold-out show on January 25th.

After a successful career that has ravaged many a thesaurus searching for alternate positive praise, comes first track  ‘Erase’ is a good opener to the year. The track finds They Might Be Giants in an almost a lo-fi approach, stripped back with punched verses. It would be fair to cry our in many a city square, this is another  guitar-led quirk-some electro anthem, and you would not be too far wrong. In 2015, a worthy 8.2/10
