Oh why is your hate so addicting and I
Well I wonder where you've been
I don't see you often

I try to feel something for you
But that's all that I can do
Give my shadow to you

Do you ever see me at night
And does it please you at all
When you head up the wall

I'd go with you if you asked me to
But we wouldn't get too far
Two strangers in the dark

Curious comment, as I have grown rather fond of this song (rated 9) and have grown rather weary of the Stone Roses.
A feel good tune. Summer

 Yes, something from Desintegration 
Very groovy music.
Great sunny biking band but in my opinion they have far more superior songs such as "disappear always", "counting days", "paradise", "nocturne", "to know you" or "golden haze".
Just saying ;)

Has to be one of the catchiest hooks EVER. Totally traces The Cure's In-Between Days! Makes me want to hear The Ocean Blue, too!

 
Ditto in The Ocean Blue...thanks I couldn't place it.  
Nice way to start the day on the east coast in sunny FL
Ashamed I only discovered this band recently. Love everything I've heard from them. 
this is so good for the ears (to paraphrase a top poster)

In the same twee lightweight vein as Belle & Sebastian and St Etienne. As the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy described planet Earth: "mostly harmless". In one ear and out the other leaving little trace of its passing.
Reminds me of The Samples, nice sound. Too bad I can never remember their name.

No need to compare, this is a great song and a great band in their own right!

 
Yes, exactly; it can sound like a lot of different bands depending on what one wants to hear. For most of the tunes here there will be someone who says the song sounds like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, or, of course, The Beatles. To me, it sounds very little like The Cure in terms of melody and certainly not in terms of the vocals.  It does resemble "Just Like Heaven" in some ways (some of the guitar licks and the overall guitar sound) but the tempo and melody are different, and "Just Like Heaven" is largely a departure from the sound of most of The Cure's tunes. This does have more of a lush sound like some of the so-called "shoe-gazer" bands (mentioned below).  At least no one has yet written that it belongs in a Quentin Tarantino film. Cool tune.

there is only 1 cure... and this isn't it.
Just like Real Estate.
And I love Real Estate.
This is really retro:  It could be from the 60's or the 80's.

I prefer this to most of the Cure I remember from college days...

Cure-kinda knock-off - not?
A happier cure.
Decided that the first minute is almost like Stone Roses....?
Radio dept.? Very nice. Now back to bench press. 
Still like it......

I hear the Cure too. As rdo intimated, this is a bit bright and light for the Cure, but the rhythm and guitar remind me of happier stuff from Robert Smith and Co.

The vocal takes me right back to the 60's bands - The Association maybe.

Blacksburg, VA? Huh. Wonder if they're Virginia Tech grads. I have a lot of distant relatives in that neck of the woods.  
Gonna see these guys at Lolla this year.

Summer time . . . yeah.  This is good stuff.
Summer time.
Pleasant, although a bit insubstantial. Ocean Blue, someone said? I can hear that...
..i keep thinking Ocean Blue when this one comes on..but then that doesn't quite seem right..

No, this is more in the "shoe-gazing" style.  This is too nice for the Cure.  Everything good by the Cure was at least a bit dark.
Like it, lets hear more from them.....
Not CURE-ing for my ears!
Sounds nice, but has a lot (too much?) influence of some British bands of the 80's, at least in the instrumental part. Think of The Cure and that period...

Savannah? Their website says Blacksburg, VA.

No matter - thought they sounded familiar, I'm positive they have been through here at one of the electronica venues.
