Just Listen: Sandbox Astronomy

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Sandbox Astronomy are a bit of a throwback, in the sense that their songs are loaded with classic pop tricks: catchy melodies, jangly guitars, soft harmonies. Just look at a track like the helplessly lovable "Lost Languages", which you just want to cuddle with on a comfy, colourful couch somewhere.

They remind me of Ola Podrida, straight from the way they play their instruments to the vocals to the lyrical tendencies. Which is an excellent thing. I adore Ola Podrida.

Check the mp3 below, and if you enjoy it as much as I do, be sure to download their debut EP View From The Centre Of The Universe for free (or maybe even with a charitable donation?) here.

Lovely. The strong lyrics and the weaving in of different instruments deserve a special mention.

P.S. Thanks for Ola Podrida.
