Hero & Leander – Kiss me by the water cooler (from the album Tumble, Tapete Records)

This may be a bit twee for some tastes but there’s something about it I love.

It could be the unashamed naivety of its blue-eyed soul. Or the arrangement, those lush piano chords and the bell-clear male-female voices. Or just for this line, “kiss me dry or drenched”. That’s an epithet liable to stick in your mind and grow in meaning.
