The Inbetweeners

I’m so in love with this song at the moment, Lola And Tom by The Inbetweeners:

Lola And Tom tells a story about peoples’ private secrets and how these small but important things can completely change who they are, even if no-one knows them. It contrasts private and public lives, and does so with enthralling style.

The vocals are effortlessly delicate, and there are so many memorable characters that are only mentioned once or twice in the song. Lola And Tom captures vivd characters and defines them by one line, from the woman who everyone thought was this little slice of heaven but who had a boob job at eleven, to the professor who taught philosophy with a twinkle in his eye and let it slide when you fucked up your homework, but was selling on the side.

“The little things you thought were perfection didn’t seem so perfect under closer inspection.”

Enough about the song, the band is Melbourne outfit The Inbetweeners. Formed early this year, they have so far recorded a few songs, all of which are streaming on their Facebook page. In all honesty, I know very little about them. The band consists of four members, but trying to gain any information past this is difficult partly due to the British sitcom that shares their name, which confuses Google my secret research techniques.

There seems to be very little information about the band floating around on the internet apart from their Facebook and Unearthed pages, but while we have a song as good as Lola And Tom, who cares?
