Pete & The Pirates – Mr. Understanding

The pop/punk blend is a feeling I really can never get enough of, at least when it’s done right. Pete & The Pirates are a band from Reading, England, they formed in 2005 and have since released two official EPs. Their sound is a mix of 80s post punk and 90’s American indie rock, fresh. Mr. Understanding is from their 2008 critically acclaimed LP, Little Death. The songs melody is as infectious as they come, the lyrics are simple yet meaningful – my favorite kind. Completely forgot about these guys till the ever faithful iTunes shuffle put them back in the picture. Great song, enjoy.

You and me trying hard to remember… How we ever started out with our sights so high.”
