Friday Afternoon Music: Kate Nash’s “Do-Wah-Doo”

This is what solid, upbeat pop looks like:

-Production that tries harder than the average generic oomp-tsk oomp-tsk synth and bass, and actually incorporates analog instrumentation.

-A singer who writes her own songs and plays some of her own instruments.

-Also a singer who isn’t afraid to show a little vulnerability and expand her lyrical palette beyond “I’m at the club, I’m awesome” territory.

-And in general, music that is the point of the music video, rather than ancillary to the opportunity to show off a bunch of wacky, skimpy costumes and reinforce the singer’s brand.

Thus concludes today’s cranky old man rant.
