Classic Vibes from Popincourt

Tired of the modern musical landscape? Same. So why not take a trip with Popincourt, the French songwriter brandishing his own brand of power-pop…with just the faintest hints of Weller or Costello. The guitar chords chop right through from the get-go, stuttering at first, waiting to unleash their hook when united with a bouncing organ line. It’s almost like we’re inside some mod-club, shaking about whilst Popincourt serenades us all. Kick off your shoes, jitter about and feel yourself free with this catchy number. Look for it to appear on the band’s new record, slated for a Spring release on Jigsaw Records.

New Music from Popincourt

popincourtSome bands play by their own set of rules, pulling in a slew of influences that don’t necessarily resonate with the modern trends. But, in the case of Popincourt, brandishing such an approach sets one apart from their peers, allowing them to rise to the top of the game. For my two cents, there seems to be a part mod, part pub-rock nod on this new single, with a hint of traditional pop sensibility. The brevity of the song allows for maximized enjoyment from the get-go, and giving mixing credits to Ken Stringfellow never hurt anyone around these parts. The new album from the project is called A New Dimension to Modern Love, and it’s being released on May 27th via Jigsaw Records, so you know it has the ATH seal of approval.
