I've never been the biggest Blur fan, but this latest cut from the forthcoming The Magic Whip entitled 'There Are Too Many Of Us' seems to have caught my attention, at least for a minute.
While the lyrics are rather drab and the instrumentation isn't revolutionary, I think somewhere between the marching drum beat and the constant string section, there's something intriguing about this number. A lot of the comments on the video seem to agree that it sounds more like a Gorillaz track than a Blur hit, and perhaps that's why it resonated with me a little bit more than the previous single 'Go Out'.
The band actually took to the stage in London last week to play the upcoming album in full, but unfortunately for most, it was a fanclub only venue of approximately 300 people. For those not lucky to be in attendance, the wait to hear the album continues until it's release on 27th April.
