The new Wild Flag single, “Romance,” is pretty cool, especially the verses. I liked Sleater-Kinney, from which two thirds of Wild Flag was sewn, and as I first heard this song I was pretty psyched up. Then the chorus kicked in and made me think of another song and artist, which really bummed me out:
Maybe this isn’t the specific Pat Benetar song Wild Flag’s chorus brings to mind, but please excuse me from doing any further research on the music of that ’80s vixen. Ugh! Whatever song I have in mind, I’m getting a certain Benetar vibe from the chorus. Sorry if I’ve spoiled your day, but I couldn’t suffer in silence.
