This song is adorable. Taken from an upcoming EP by the young Welsh septet Los Campesinos!, "Don't Tell Me to Do the Maths" features four guaranteed gloom removers: breathless boy-girl vocals, a neon guitar line, bubbly tempo and endearingly bratty lyrics ("If only you could give your life to literature/ just don't read 'Jane Eyre'").
