Virals "Summer Girls"

With snow currently sprinkled over the streets of Glasgow, summer seems a long way away.  When Virals' "Summer Girls" plays, however, it feels that bit closer.  Just why it was tucked away on the flip of the group's recent Zoo Music 7" is a mystery. It's by far the strongest song of the four and should have taken centre stage on the A-side.  An airy melody married to a post-Shop Assistants style thumper with some real heads down surges will always catch my ear and a cute polar bear (he'd be at home in Glasgow tonight!) will always catch my eye.  The volume dial goes up for a reason.  To enhance the power of songs like "Summer Girls" is that reason.
