VIDEO: "She Smiles For Pictures" (Dir. by Army of Kids) - http://vimeo.com/30176102
"She Smiles For Pictures" is the second single from Romantic Comedy, following the excellent "Sad Girls." Featuring lead vocals from Ian, "She Smiles For Pictures" is a gorgeous piece of power-pop, fueled by ringing guitars, an earworm of a guitar lead and Luka & Sam's propulsive rhythm section. Ian's vocal melody is a total winner, the upbeat cadences belying the rather dark lyrics. 2:53 of pop perfection. "Polyommatus Blue" on the flip is another gem. A mid-tempo tune that recalls the lost mid-period Creation pop of groups like 18 Wheeler and pre-Screamadelica Primal Scream, it's another fine slice of classic guitar jangle, and exclusive to this single.
