The clocks have sprung forward, and the rain has mysteriously disappeared here at Uncut towers… What better song to soak up the Springy warm sunshine vibes than Super Furry Animals “Juxtapose With U”…

The single, taken from the band’s fifth album Rings Around The World was released in Summer 2001.

Trivia: The song was conceived as a duet with East 17‘s Brian Harvey, but he turned the part down. Instead SFA’s Gruff sings both parts, half through a vocoder.

A crushing/happy song for what must surely be classed the first day of proper Springtime, check out the love here:
