about

It may be possible that you may have never heard of them, but this is totally understandable they have only played four different concerts since signing to Elefant at the beginning of the summer of 2007. The fact is that this group of seven, led by the peppy Liz offers a well-rounded presentation (Amen to the delicious “Kiss You in the Snow” which came out on our holiday single!), where their handwriting marks are above and beyond excellent. More importantly, the pop tunes are filled with emotion. “All I Wanna Do” reminds us of CAMERA OBSCURA and embraces passion with the legacy of Phil Spector, with a chorus filled with moving romanticism and a song that grows with the intensity as each compass is played, embellishing the melancholy until it stops and it leaves you shivering. “Valentine” has something else in store for the listener, as it is on the other side of the single, with a tight chorus (a must to dance to!), an agile rhythm and Diana Ross thinking that THE SUPREMES never ended. An amazing B side! Another great work to add to the list of producer Ian Catt (SAINT ETIENNE, TREMBLING BLUE STARS, SHAMPOO, THE BOO RADLEYS, Kahimi Karie, THE FIELD MICE). Pitchfork, Plan B and Under the Radar have all spoken highly of them, comparing them to classic bands such as THE BEATLES, ELO and THE BEACH BOYS and more modern groups like SATURDAY LOOKS GOOD TO ME, BELLE & SEBASTIAN and LUCKY SOUL, among others.

Track Name: All I Wanna Do
I don’t wanna have to hang around this crowd no more in this place again
Everybody thinks they’re having fun getting wrecked up and making wrecked up friends

All I wanna do is hang around with you, if you want me to
All I wanna do is hang around with you, let’s go home

I don’t wanna have to work the week in boredom we can just carry on
Watching people we know falling down, like drunken clowns
And come unstuck, undone

All I wanna do is hang around with you, if you want me to
All I wanna do is hang around with you, let’s go home
Track Name: Valentine
Have you ever wondered, baby, how life could be?
Spend some time in some far off places, spend some time with me
Get out of the hole you’re in and come on out and see

So won’t you tell me that you’ll think about it
I really need to hear about it
You know she doesn’t understand you baby, she’s never gonna let you be
So won’t you tell me that you’ll think about it
I really need to hear about it
You know she doesn’t understand you baby
She’s never gonna let you be her valentine
