We Were Evergreen: Leeway
Another French band that played in the UK earlier this month that certainly merited another mention are We Were Evergreen.
Their take on indie pop is a charming one that I think we'll be hearing a lot more of before too long, embracing as they do everything from Belle and Sebastian to Arcade Fire, via
glockenspiel, banjo and ukulele.
Infectious songs that can't fail to make you smile, even if there's a side order of melancholy.
They've been together for five years, and the band finally went into the studio to record their debut album in February.
Fingers crossed we get to hear it before too long.
The UK based Parisien trio who met up at the Conservatoire de Musique in Paris, have previously released a couple of EPs, we Were Evergreen in 2010 and Flings the same year.
The band promise that no goldfish were harmed in the making of the video.
