Stars and Sons – In the Ocean

Stars and SonsIn the Ocean

Noah and the Whale offered up their take on the indie pop anthem earlier this year, with ‘5 Years Time’ giving Mighty Boosh fans a few new dance moves to show off at their underage discos. The band’s contrived image though, with tweed, trilbies and waistcoats galore, made it all just too hard to stomach.

It’s good news then that Stars and Sons have created something as equally joyous in its three minute pop ways, yet without any smug pretention to mire its good intentions.

Citing both The Flaming Lips and Amiga classic, Monkey Island, as equal influences, it’s no surprise this single revels in its fun attitude, not once getting above its hand-claps and ‘ooh-oohs’. Mike Lord won’t be wearing sunglasses indoors anytime soon.

8.5/10

Release Date: 17 Nov
