Playful Pop from Trumpets of Consciousness
I don’t know how to explain my adoration for this new track from French outfit Trumpets of Consciousness, but one things for sure, I’ve been playing it happily for the last hour. For one, it’s seemingly an homage to my wife, Stephanie; we like to go out on Saturdays. Musically, the song’s got this weird amalgam of sounds, at times sounding like Phoenix, then twisting into this extravagant sibling of Radiohead, then slinking back to this intoxicating bounce that one can only find in French pop of the best sort. And if the song doesn’t do it for you, then surely the video will; it’s clever stop-action footage matched perfectly to the tune. Their new LP, Approximate drops this Friday via Echo Orange.
