Loney, Dear

I Am John

Commas in band names are not acceptable. Question marks, yes. Exclamation marks, maybe. But commas are simply not rock’n’roll. Neither, it has to be said, is this – but it is delightful, bouncy and entirely summery skip-pop that brings to mind the harmony-drenched Francophilia of Stereolab without all of the boring droney bits. ‘Warm, Dark, Comforting Night’ on the B-side is slightly brooding, in that it has an accordion in it, but just as lovely. Music to smoke Gitanes on a park bench to.
