New Favourite Song: "So Good at Being in Trouble"

Named one of Fuse's must-see acts at SXSW, New Zealand indie cats Unknown Mortal Orchestra have made an early 2013 splash with their second album II and breakout, strut-inducing single "So Good at Being In Trouble." This song is on constant rotation with me lately; I cannot get enough of the old-school funk sounds woven into that addictive and relaxed indie groove. I'm a sucker for soul.

Ruban Nielson's dreamy croon is both adorable and sizzling when paired with the downtown beat, making me wonder what his smooth-talking abilities must be like with their new found female groupies. The song could easily just be a typical ode to bad girls, but the chorus and title line nicely punctuate with the charming " good at being in love." If II's low-fi, psychedelic flavour translates onto the big stage and into future albums - I'm an immediate convert.
