It’s loud, it’s brash and it’s got a tambourine being played by Stuart’s foot – in the video at least. My ludicrously expensive vinyl copy of ‘Curtains’ turned up today and I’m just coming to the end of the first play. This is one of the finest upbeat Tindersticks tracks, with a truly exciting malevolent drive to it and sweeping strings that do little to dampen the mood. It always sound so vital and I can’t help but love it for that alone. The black and white, swooshing-camera video is a perfect accompaniment to a wonderful song. The whole album is pretty bloody special and feel free to Spotify yourself silly with that one by clicking here.
Alternatively, press play on this clip and enjoy this song on its own.
