Jarrod Gorbel and Blake Sennett know a thing or two about writing perfect pop songs (see “Portions For Foxes”). The Los Angeles duo, together now as Night Terrors of 1927, teased this type of aural sweetness in the ambitious “Dust And Bones,” off last month’s Anything To Anyone EP.
Turns out that was just an appetizer, as their new track with Tegan And Sara, “When You Were Mine,” is one of the most majestic and gorgeous songs of the year, rising to John Hughes soundtrack heights while suggesting what the Killers coulda-shoulda sounded like in the late-00s.
