Capital Cities- Kangaroo Court

With a ludicrously strange name and concept, this song is quirky but actually very addictive. If you did not know, and yes Wikipedia had to lend me a hand, the definition of an actual 'Kangaroo Court' is a 'mock court in which the principles of law and justice are disregarded or perverted'. So there you have it, better background knowledge of what was going through the band's mind when they wrote it. This is the only song I have heard by 'Capital Cities' but this song particularly reminds me of The Human League and those sort of similar early 80's band but the song has a nice summer twist in the catchy chorus. It is certainly a song worth a listen because it is very different but easily loveable.
