The Courteeners - You Over Did it Doll

by Rich Morris Rating:2 Release Date:2010-02-15

It lives! C'mon, you didn't think landfill indie was just going to lie down and die, did you? Not while Topman is still flogging skinny jeans, it won't. To be fair to The Courtneeners (and, just as an experiment, let's try) 'You Over Did it Doll' (note lack of punctuation) has glossy production values, a nice shimmering effect on the choruses and a pretty nifty four-four beat. That's right, one could justifiably claim The Courteeners have gone disco, although it sounds more like Disco Friday at Rochdale Working Men's Club once Liam Fray starts up with his voice like chips and curry sauce. Lyrically, Fray is having a go at a former flame who's rolled back into town wearing stilettos (hussy) and generally getting above her station. He stops just short of telling her she's asking for it, but you get the feeling if he gets a couple more down him then it's only a matter of time. Repellent stuff.
