In a fair and proper world, pop music like this would be played on the radio instead of all these pumped-up, hormonal plastic-girls and baby-boys… but then, no one ever said the world is good!
Please also check out Mr Kershaw’s new album Ei8th on which he shows once again that he is one of the most underrated current artists. Would love for him to get the same press coverage as other 80’s bands and singers (who btw. seldom reach the same level of talent and craft that Nik has been delivering over the last couple of years!).
Anyway, that’s just me rambling away and dwell in the good, old times…
Just got this promo-mail yesterday, and the mentioned reference to The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Another Sunny Day surely spawned my interest. And the French/English indie-pop-collaboration Pale Spectres delivers what they promise! Just listen to Helen Of Troy, the first single taken from their upcoming EP; it will put a smile on your face! Oh, and did I mention that you can download the song for free via the band’s homepage? I didn’t? Well, now you know!
Bit of a strange video, but wow… what a song!!!
Finally, Marillion seem to be back in form! Album will be out later this year.
Album out on May 7th… check details here.
