Single Review – Born To Be Bla Bla Bla Bla by Jilted Jonas (2020) (Ord)

Born to be Bla Bla Bla Bla Bla is the debut single from Berlin based Swede, Jonas Markbäck, whose succinct promo blurb begins and ends with ‘…soon to be twee pop star’.
Perhaps not quite. For the Jilted Jonas sound aesthetic is specifically the sound of everything that was once so perfectly unrefined about the  slightly manic, plainly left field and unapologetically ramshackle sound of all that was late 80’s Television Personalities style indie-pop and the its more dynamic C86 cousin.
Roasted with irreverence to a perfect crisp, this sort of sound was never really appreciated among the big hair, shoulder pads and goths toying with death among post-punk despair. However, now it is musical catnip for anyone who can handle liberal dosages of fluttering jangle, among salacious helpings of infinitely cool weird.
One to watch out for!
