Athletes In Paris – Borrowed Time * Single of the day * release date 4/4/2011

Borrowed Time is the impressive début single from Athletes In Paris who are not French but are currently based in Newcastle.

It's a great song and the nobly restrained production and clever arrangement give it room to breath. Together the drums and rhythm guitar lay down a solid but interesting pulse with the bass getting a bit of limelight in places, which I love.

That's the beauty of this track, varying sound and feel through the selective use of a few instruments. As such I could imagine this song going down brilliantly live, especially to a large crowd, there's just so many opportunities to overhead hand clap and communally sing a catchy chorus.
Are we living on borrowed time? Almost certainly. Wake up, smell the coffee and listen to Athletes In Paris.
