This is the new single from Indie anti Corporate agitators Swansea Sound who feature Amelia Fletcher and Hue Williams formerly of Pooh Sticks alongside Rob Pursey and Ian Button.
The band are so anti corporate that the single is not available on Spotify or I-tunes but is being released by no less than 4 labels in England by Skep Wax, in America by Happy Happy Birthday To Me and in Japan on Formosa Punk as a 7" Single and on Lavender Sweep in wales as a cassingle.
Indies Of The World is a great tribute to indie bands and labels doing it for themselves and the joys of putting out 7" singles with lots of cool vocal effects and placement in the mix on a song that's a bit Belle And Sebastian meets The Vaselines as it encourages you to put out your own records and stay away from Spotify.
The b-side is Je Ne Sais Quai a fast paced indie rave up to a Paramour that has that Je ne Sais Quai. This is cool and bouncy, great fun indie pop with cool lyrical banter between Hue and Amelia.
