Were Erasure’s A Little Respect left out in the Californian sun all summer long, it might come back sounding as gloriously warped as does Los Angeles Police Department’s The Only One. And while this particular LAPD, the musical nom de plume of Los Angelino Ryan Pollie, are likely better acquainted with Wheatus’ 2001 rendition, The Only One plays off a similarly meek, if no less charming lyrical crux. “Watching as the train arrives, I can’t just sit as days go by/ And think of you, without me” Pollie chimes, his words very redolent of Andy Bell’s confessing: “I’m so in love with you/ I’ll be forever blue”. But ultimately, such is the absorption of the slacker lo-fi appeal what lies beneath, that Ryan scarcely has to work for our undying affections even in the slightest.
