Band à part - Franny Y Tú (Elefant)

There's been a rash of Indietracks-inspired videos over the last few years, and, indeed, if, for example, you've skived off work for the weekend to be at the world's best music festival, then you've got to be a bit careful you don't get caught on a Super 8.

Band à Part were at this year's Indietracks with their recording equipment, and they've made a very cute video to accompany their charming new single. 'Franny Y Tú' twists and turns all over the place, but never remains anything less than the sweetest pop. Musically, it takes a lot from those Siesta bands of yore, but with a little more edge, whilst the international pop underground that were part of the Shelflife milieu in the late 1990s and early 2000s are an obvious influence.

As summer fades into Autumn, it's songs like this that make the absence of those longer days a little more bearable. Close the curtains, eat some chocolate and put this on your record player and life will still be sweet. Oh, and 10p to anyone who can spot themselves here...

I like this but I keep thinking of Brotherhood of Man. Weird.
