Tags: indie-pop, los campesinos
Los Campesinos is one of the more promising indie-pop bands I have heard in the past year. Exuberant, lots of polished hooks, and clever turns-of-phrase, but with attitude. (and a glockenspiel that figures prominently in their sound)
The singers shout a bit much. (Aleksandra sometimes sounds like an 8- year old who stumbled upon her parent’s meth stash.) And there is not quite enough emotional range for a complete album. But this band should get better with maturity.
