Wasting your days. Chasing some girl’s alright. Chasing cocaine through the backrooms of the world all night.

Wasting your days
Chasing some girl’s alright.
Chasing cocaine
Through the backrooms of the world all night.

Wasting your days
Chasing some girl’s alright.
Chasing cocaine
Through the backrooms of the world all night.

Sounds, Smash Hits, Melody Maker, NME,
All sound like a dream to me.
All sound like a dream to me.
All sounds like a dream…

Sounds, Smash Hits, Melody Maker, NME,
All sound like a dream to me.
All sound like a dream to me.
All sounds like a dream…

Step out of your toga into the ocean,
Look they got your prints on the fog…
(In a pinch, in the sky, in your eye)

I wrote a song for America, who knew?

Dan Bejar returns with a brilliant and accessible album that draws from the lush sounds of the early 1980s but never forgets the importance of songwriting.

Destroyer: Kaputt – review

The gorgeous title track features a fan languorously imagining what the distant life of a rock star might be like. “Wasting your days, chasing some girls, chasing cocaine,” sings Bejar, who adds a litany of largely British music press titles: “Sounds, Smash Hits, Melody Maker, NME, all sound like a dream to me.” At moments like that, Kaputt feels like an open love letter to a vanished pop era: it’s unique and warm and beautiful, as love letters are supposed to be.
