Sound alike

Close your eyes and listen to this song. Tell me who it sounds like.



The English speaking radio station here in Lux plays loads of English bands and not a lot of American music. It is fun getting to know new bands (new to me, anyway.) You can see some of the play lists here.

I've spent long enough in the UK that I can no longer tell who is famous where. Nor do I know which bands are American and which are British. I think I'll scroll through your link and see what I can learn.

What a fun song. It certainly took me back to my college radio days. He sounded like the Kinks guy to me and I have a bit of a crush on that singing mouth in the video. Kinda looked like Christian Bale before the unfortunate beard.

Audrey - The Kinks, YES!! Not who I was thinking of, but perhaps even more accurate. My mind went to David Byrne/ Talking Heads. But the Kinks?!?! Right on.

Yes, sounds like, Ray Davies, of the Kinks...who is this new singer? You must tell that, correct?

The band is The Divine Comedy. The singer is Neil Hannon. They are from N. Ireland. Read through their wiki page and was surprised they haven't enjoyed more success. Here it is -
