Our Aussie buddies Garçon Garçon have graciously given us an exclusive preview of their new track "Maybe Tonight" which will appear on their upcoming EP. Take a listen below, I think you'll find it's just as glorious and beautifully poptastic as you would expect from the boys.
Maybe Tonight (EP Preview) by garcongarcon
I asked the boys to share their thoughts around "Maybe Tonight" and this is what they had to say…
NATHAN: This is our teenage love song for the high school prom. It’s all about that niave romantic idea of meeting ‘the one’ in a random, beautiful way. Like bumping into someone on the street, at the Laundromat or when you go out. I was a stranger in a new city when I moved to Sydney and I was listening to Yeah Yeah Yeahs a LOT, especially "Maps" and I was inspired to write a call to action for love! This was also one of the first songs we ever worked on together when we met in 2010. It started out as a guitar demo like "Take Me Out" and then Nick took it and made it into this amazing song. It was like someone finishing a sentence for you. They know what you’re thinking and what should come next. When I first heard it was exactly as I had always imagined it. But Better.
NICK: For me, "Maybe Tonight" is like the ideal daydream for single guys and girls – Its that dorky flash forward you have when you meet someone you're really keen on. You know, the one where you imagine yourself running towards them in slow motion on a beach or eating ice cream whilst sitting on a ferris wheel…Its totally naff, but it happens! I think this song really gels with the nostalgic vibe of the EP. We really wanted to capture the feeling of being children of the 80s and 90s – happy, hopeful, ambitious, and ready to take on the world.
