Her’s - Speed Racer

Set your shoulders to ‘shimmy’ and let Her’s take you for some ’50s thrills.

If the cliches are to be believed, then girls love a bad boy and nice guys finish last. Looking to relegate such claims to the Take Me Out cutting room floor, however, are Liverpool’s Her’s: a duo fully invested in the powers of old fashioned romance, but who’ll also charm your lady-friend right into their arms. ‘Speed Racer’ - the newest cut from their forthcoming debut song “collection” (somewhere between an EP and an LP we assume) is a cheeky thing built around the simplest of four chord sequences that channels the bright-eyed charm of ’50s doo-wop and the early days of rock’n’roll and filters it through a Mac DeMarco-loving lens. Lyrically, meanwhile, it finds singer Stephen Fitzpatrick getting the girl with some truly smooth talking. “I only need your love for one night/ One night repeated for the rest of my life,” he croons. Who could possibly resist?
