Lightspeed Champion

falling off the lavender bridgeIndie pop – you wouldn’t have guessed it from an ex-member of the Test Icicles.

Devonte Hynes does go there. Oh yes. Lovely melodic folky indie pop, a deviation from the hardcore and dance-punk influenced music his last band was churning out.

New album out since Jan 21st this year – Falling off the Lavender Bridge, on domino records. Have a listen. Galaxy of the Lost is one of those awesome songs that once you listen to a few times over, you get addicted to.
And even if you don’t like indie pop, you should get it just cause Hynes looks so quirky on the album cover.
