Second single taken from "Let's get out of this country", the record that confirms CAMERA OBSCURA as one of the most important bands of the moment. The sweetness in Tracyanne Campbell appeals to all kinds of crowds, and the Glasgow band have achieved on this third album a timeless sound of their own, which sounds classic and makes you dream with moments you haven't lived. What else can you ask from a good pop song?
"Let's get out of this country" is the title track on the third album, and is also the main song on this single. A sunny, classic pop song which, as the rest of the album, was recorded in Sweden under the production of Jari Haapalainen (producer of such gems as THE CONCRETES or Ed Harcourt). Along with this song, the CD-single features two new tracks: "Lemon juice and paper cuts", evocative mid-tempo, lead by piano and organ, and "Return to send her", with a country-style guitar that is the perfect counterpoint to Tracyanne's vocal melody.
On the vinyl edition, the B-side is the version the band's done of Sheena Easton's "Modern girl", originally to be included on the CD compilation that comes along with the summer issue of Q Magazine (where many current artists cover songs from the 80s to celebrate the mag's 20th anniversary).
