“19? You’re only 19, for god’s sake,
oh-oh-oh… you don’t need a boyfriend!
…I know how it feels to be your age.”
Those cool lines above come from UK band The Long Blondes’ song “Once and Never Again”, a smashing ditty expertly pitched at the pre-21 set. Lead singer Kate has that ‘cool as cucumbers’ singing style of the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde (also in NYC tonight at the Roseland).
