New Music: Land Lovers – Confidants
Despite tradition dictating that it should have been yesterday, and despite the earthy folk in Newgrange having arranged their whole calendars around it, the Winter Solstice apparently only staggered in this morning, bedheaded and bleary-eyed as we suppose December affairs should be. Today is the shortest day of the year, folks! So why not make it a little more deliciously cock-eyed by blasting some sweetshine indie-pop through your own inner chambers. Take that, natural order of things!
Land Lovers are a Dublin pop band who sound like Supergrass crossed with Stornoway crossed with skinny-dipping in candyfloss. They make you want to dance like this.
Their new album (their first full-band album) is called Confidants and it’s making waves you’ll be tickled pink to get swept up by. Certainly it’s making Sinéad bop around Culch Towers like a dashboard bobble-head, which we think is just swell. Confidants – a collection of bubblegum, retrotastic melodies wrapping up some smart and quirky lyrics – is available for download or on gorgeously-packaged CD now from Bandcamp.
This is single The Cinema Bell.
Now, off you pop.
