Spaghetti Anywhere

You know you’re getting even older than you thought you were when you hear bands that sound like massive Belle and Sebastian fans to the point where they virtually ape their earlier releases. Bad thing? Absolutely not. Sure, B&S might be a flabby, bloated indiepop Dire Straits these days, but that shouldn’t take away from the fact that those first three albums were pretty much perfect.

Celebrating this are bands such as World Atlas, and Spaghetti Anywhere, who are from “Rome, Glasgow and East London.” Rehearsals must be tricky.

Spaghetti Anywhere specialise in those fragile pop masterpieces that B&S used to seemingly knock out whilst sitting on the loo. What’s more, they’ve made a video for ‘Love Again’ featuring two impossibly beautiful human beings, which sort of makes me melt. But I’m putting that down to tiredness. I’m a double hard bastard really.

Here's that video.

Oh wow, that video was wonderful in every way. When they both sit on the bed, my stomach flipped. That little felt heart that keeps appearing and changing size. Them skipping around the tree. I think this was filmed in Hampstead Heath? An incredibly romantic and ideal setting. And they were an incredibly lovely looking couple.
