Feeling a bit nostalgic, here are a couple of tunes from 10 years ago that maybe you missed. And even if you didn’t miss them, it’s always nice to be reminded.
According to their Wikipedia page, Mint Royale is not the jangly, female fronted band they led me to believe they are. In fact, they are a still-kicking big beat duo in the vein of The Propellerheads, Chemical Brothers, etc. The girl is a guest vocalist. Huh. You learn something new everyday.
This song, very specifically, reminds me of driving along the lake in the summertime.
There is a line in this song’s chorus that a girl once told me described exactly what she wanted in life: “…a TV embrace.”
I don’t know what Ben Lee meant when he penned that, but apparently she did. I hope she got it – or, if she hasn’t yet, I hope she does.
