PAPA - If You're My Girl, Then I'm Your Man

PAPA - If You're My Girl, Then I'm Your Man

Why do we like this?

With the proclamatory title, "If You're My Girl, Then I'm Your Man," this song begins with a specific destination in mind. Brought to us by Los Angeles-based PAPA, a band fronted by former Girls drummer Darren Weiss, it marches forward unapologetically declaring, "If you come round here/I'm gonna make it clear/I'm gonna be your man."

As it would be, the drumming plays a foremost role. With a layered, intricate beat reminiscent of The National and a heartfelt piano aside that harkens back to The Killers, PAPA finds a superb balance, delivering a tune with the detached catchiness of a classic Clash track mixed with the universal appeal of a Passion Pit anthem.

"If You're My Girl, Then I'm Your Man" is currently available as a 7" via Lorna Vista with another track we've featured, "Put Me To Work," both off their self-titled debut album due out later this summer.
