We don't know where you are, but we can tell you that in Europe, it is very hot. 35 ° C / 95 ° F currently. So we wanted freshness and lightness, and that's exactly what we found in the UK with the new single from The Candle Thieves.

This pop gem is taken from their sixth (yes!) studio album released earlier this year. A song that made us want to listen to the whole album. And the album made us want to listen to everything else. We came across some very good surprises, including their last album which only includes songs of about ... one minute!

An original band that produces original sound is getting rare. Mixing several universes, flirting with indie-folk sometimes, and sometimes with a more advanced pop production as for this single, the English duo is delighting us.

You know, like those candy cones we bought at the supermarket when we were young. We open it, without really knowing what we will find inside. And the more we search, the happier we are.

"Bulletproof Vest" is exactly what people need right now: a declaration of love but still more or less utopian. Indeed, it seems that this relationship has no chance of existing, but as they say: if you don't try, you don't get.

On a very catchy melody and a pop production (with some very retro synths, but we love it), The Candle Thieves seduced us in less than a minute. We find ourselves sing along very quickly because the chorus takes us immediately.

Don't hesitate to dig a little deeper, and explore their Spotify, because these two guys really have something unique to offer you. Like this gem that got more than 300K streams.

We can easily understand why. It's another masterpiece full of beauty and poetry.

And the least we can say is that their catalog of songs is already very complete... Active for more than ten years, their Spotify is a gold mine!

Added to our Main Spotify Playlist, our "Let Love In" playlist, and played daily on Indie Music Center's Radio.

Lyrics

We met on a train

I never caught your name

Never saw you again so now I'm stuck

Told you the name of my band

You'd never heard of us

Well that's not saying much

So just breathe in

Tell you all the things that you wanna hear

If you hold me now

I'm a wreck I'm a mess so just

Hold me now

I'm a bullet in your bulletproof vest

You gave me a look

I'd stepped onto your foot

It's OK I'll take what I can get

I pictured us happy

I imagined the family

But I know there's no chance of that

If you hold me now

I'm a wreck I'm a mess so just

Hold me now

I'm a bullet in your bulletproof vest

Hold me now

I'm a wreck I'm a mess so just

Hold me now

I'm a bullet in your bulletproof vest

There's was a time that I could find

A little memory inside

Of all the times that I have died I think you brought me back to life

I don't want to bring you down

I just want you to stick around

Cause you just lift me off the ground

As this goes on and on and on

Hold me now

Hold me now

Hold me now

I'm a wreck I'm a mess so just

Hold me now

I'm a bullet in your bulletproof vest

I'm in love with you I should have said
