One of the kings and originators of Britpop, legendary UK group Suede can help to make every relationship and night (usually at the same time) feel as if they are experiencing some hard to explain turbulence. Mistakes have been made and everything's gotten darker and more urgent. Lead singer Brett Anderson makes it seem like every character is about to purposefully ditch everything that he thinks that he knows and just let it all go. They're about to pop. They're through with groveling and being used by their longing. They shall remain mopey, but they shall do it with a little more self-control, if the damned night will just let them. Or, if their damned relationship will just let them.
