Band Review : Bordeauxxx

England seems to be a haven for great pop right now, and Bordeauxxx are an excellent example of this.
Their songs are catchy and clever, interspersing sparse bass, drums and vocals with sparkling, thick instrumental chorsues and layered vocal harmonies. They're skilled musicians, and it shows; they also know how to balance complication and simplicity to make a really great pop song. I have two complaints about the band - they haven't put out a full album (though their recent EP, Mother's Ruin, is available for free download, or you can buy the CD for 2 pounds) and they claim they don't have enough money to come to the States and hang out with me.
Here's the video for their song "Heartstrings".
