Exclusive Track Premiere: God of Love’s “Take You Seriously”

Written by:

Our Track of the Day today comes from God Of Love.

Taken from the band’s upcoming Do Your Worst¬†album, “Take You Seriously” is a delicious blend of swirling new wave and dreamy pop that in just under three minutes manages to be one of the catchiest numbers of the summer.

Backed by an infectious synth groove, the band’s braintrust James Burnett is in fine form, his vocals summoning Wayne Hussey of The Mission U.K. and Sister Of Mercy’s Andrew Eldritch.

Filled with a dark and twitchy backbeat that builds to a fuzzy crescendo, “Take You Seriously” rocks with an undeniably earnest swagger.

“While the upcoming album is devastating at parts,” the Dallas-born Burnett tells SEM, “this particular song has a more upbeat, endearing quality and a hopefulness that says, ‘I’ll take you seriously’ and in doing so also demands it be taken seriously as well.”
