The utterly fantastic Ex-Boyfriends (now there's a collection of words you don't see used in that sequence too often...) are an energetic indie trio from San Francisco who started recording together in 2003. The songs are irresistible and infectious and I can guarantee that after a couple of listens you'll find them stuck indelibly in your head for weeks. With Robert Smith-esque vocals and a repertoire of songs about (as the band's bio puts it) "their own ex-boyfriends and girlfriends, love gone wrong, addiction, drama-addled friends and the need for you to dance at their shows", really, what's not to love about this lot?

This song is taken from the band's new album, Dear John, released this coming Tuesday. You can buy it from their label, Absolutely Kosher; go here to order it for $12 USD (shipping is free within the US) - they take Paypal, which makes things easy.

You'll be wanting to find out more and to track down more of their music, so allow me to direct you here (that'll be the band's website) and here (their MySpace page).
