Camera Obscura – French Navy
It’s not all about new-fangled modern electronic pop music round here you know. Not at all. Every once in a while I very much enjoy a bit of polite, delicate, and oh-so-twee indiepop. There’s no shame in twee. Indeed, the standard-bearers for the genre (I’ve granted them this title since Belle & Sebastian seem to be on “hiatus”) have recently been picked up by none-more-cool label 4AD. This is a pretty, if not perfect, return from the Glaswegians, taken from the upcoming My Maudlin Career album. Nice, unabashedly indie video, featuring a lovey couple frolicking around in Paris. Apt.
