She & Him #3 - Never Wanted Your Love

Facebook /

The words needed to describe She & Him's new single "Never Wanted Your Love" (the first track from their forthcoming album, Volume Three - set for release in the UK on May 13th) are hardly new ones to describe Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward's joint project, I could go with "an unfettered delight" or "irresistibly charming" or "perfectly balanced between Phil Spector bombast and indie-rock cool" or even "candy-coated bliss".

Zooey's beautiful flavoured vocals shine amongst the upbeat, breezy melody with more than a little retro about it. She & Him have certainly used a safe old rhetoric of 'if it ain't broke, why fix it'. Fans of Volume One & Two see below.
