The Cardigan's were pretty much the first "pop" group I got into during my chick rock obsession in my late teens, early twenties. This also lead me to try and write more catchy tunes, lyrics and choruses. Not sure I was very successful as I seemed to maintain my PJ Harvey-esque outlook on song-writing, but they certainly taught me how to tone down my work. I finally realized that songs didn't need to be complicated to be good. I still listen to this band to remind myself of this.
