Everything Everything’s 10 Best So Far

Today marks the 10th birthday of Manchester art-pop lads Everything Everything. Fresh off the back of their latest album ‘A Fever Dream’ – let’s have a look at their 10 best tracks so far. (In alphabetical order)

Blast Doors

With it’s almost rapped verses and with great harmonies on the chorus, Blast Doors is EE running at full speed.

Cough Cough

Featuring some of the best drums in any song ever, Cough Cough is the pounding first track on Arc.

Desire

The second single taken from ‘A Fever Dream’ proves that EE can still make catchy choruses with a sense of urgency about them after a decade.

Distant Past

The lead single from 3rd album Get to Heaven, Distant Past was a vibrant insight into what the following album would bring. What a banger.

Duet

Duet shows off the versatility of Everything Everything. An emotional, developing track backed with strings was one of the standouts on Arc.

Final Form

Final Form is far the band’s most emotional track, really showing off Jonothan Higgs’ vocals.

My Kz, Ur Bf

An example of what EE do best, My Kz is a weird one but still has an amazingly infectious melody.

No Reptiles

“It’s alright to feel like a fat child in a pushchair old enough to run, old enough to fire a gun.”

Photoshop Handsome

Photoshop Handsome was the breakout hit for Everything Everything, it’s witty lyrics and 8-bit sounding synths still standing up to their recent releases.

Schoolin

Another early single from Man Alive, Schoolin stands out as one of the strongest from that album, especially with its annoyingly catchy whistle.
