The sweetest of melodies and the darkest of videos from San Cisco

Wild Things sounds like San Cisco went down the market, picked up a pop hit, then swapped it for a sack of magic beans on the way home. There's a bit in it, around a minute in, where the sweetest, simplest arpeggio comes swirling in like a waltzing pixie, to be joined by some wonky chorus whistling, and I nearly collapsed under the gap toothed charm of it all. To offset this, the band have made a video where they get doused in petrol and burned alive by children. Wa-hey! Maybe my new favourite song in the world.
