The Verve “Love Is Noise” video

Posted August 26th, 2008 by eric

So, this comeback single from the recently reunited Verve is slowly growing on me. I was never much of a fan of Richard Ashcroft and company’s psychedelic hippie soul music, but I did have a soft-spot for “Bittersweet Symphony” before its relentless ubiquity reached astronomical proportions over a decade hence. At first I thought this new single was garbage, but the more I hear it, the more it sort of grows on me. Ashcroft’s lyrics are still mind-numbingly dull and utterly generic, but the man’s got a knack for a melody. I probably like it because it reminds me of vintage Echo & the Bunnymen, minus the annoying samples. If I were 14 again, I’d be all about this.

    The lay is a psychidelic anthem. The damsel in it is a Junoesque apparition. Anent the lyrics— thy does not matter, music is what makes music.
