After giving us a veritable train of high quality singles (with correspondingly good videos) in the early-mid 2000s, Goodshirt disappeared. But they re-surfaced in 2011, and it seems nothing has been lost. The sound has evolved a little, but the quality remains. I really like this single although I am not confident of it getting high radio-play as it is not particularly "hooky". But the reality of life for a NZ band is probably the acceptance that the charts are hard work in a unfriendly environment. This then demands they focus on delivering to their constituents who will then support them live - and hopefully in terms of album sales, merchandising etc. A pity, as I would much rather hear this on the radio, than the torrent of aural garbage that we live with at the moment. In terms of TV though, C4 is doing an excellent job. A pity it is only available on Freeview. This song "So Charming" is off Goodshirt's new EP "Skinny Mirror" which is available at www.goodshirtmusic.bandcamp.com .
