I love this song and I don’t know why. What I do know is that good things come out of New Zealand, like Lord of the Rings, Flight of the Conchords, and Lorde. In her “becoming Lorde”video she says she likes rap music because it makes her feel cooler than she is, I can relate to that. Plus its such a damn catchy tune!
I’ve just returned from a brief road trip to the Eastern Cape, and one thing that road trips always make me aware of is the importance of playlist. When you have four people in a car, there are bound to be various music tastes in a small space.
Fortunately for us, Avalanche City has one of the friendliest and most likeable sounds around. I Love Love Love (see what I did there) these guys from Down Underer (as Flight of the Conchords would say). Originally founded by Dave Baxter, the international success of New Life Above the Ground, his first album, was unprecedented and unexpected. Now he’s got some friends together and is working on a second album, of which this song is a taster of what’s to come (besides having a ridiculously adorable video). I love their use of unusual instruments, and almost all of their songs have sweet, upbeat and positive lyrics and messages, perfect for a road trip. They are particularly fond of cartoons and stock animation.
