Muchuu want you to follow them. Shut the curtains, cram your pockets with marshmallows and penny-chews and just run out the back door, down the garden path into the fields that overlook the railway line and down down down into the forest.
Don't ask questions. Just dance. Or skip. Or frolic.
Your only company is your gameboy, your imagination and everything in between.
Just follow Milky (vocals / dreamy nature) and her brother George (beats and backing vocals) into their secret world.
Somebody Tell Me is youthful escapism condensed into three minutes of nicely styled electro pop. If your bedroom wall is plastered with posters of Lykke Li and Jonas Bechtolt, then these two are your latest pinups. I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of their debut album Adventure We Go a few weeks back. Packed to the brim with more of the same, there isn't a second of filler in sight. Every track can and will be a massive single. 2010 is theirs for the taking. Already getting mad love on 6music, enjoy this exclusive.
Muchuu - Somebody Tell Me
Their pop music is gorgeously innocent, yet holds crimson undertones that prevent it reaching that saccharine saturation point and the inevitable hurling after the ferris wheel ride. Sweet, sweet escapism is what it says on the tin, if Muchuu had a tin. I'd imagine they do, it's probably filled with sweets and fairy dust. Join the queue at the secret door of The Social on Little Portland Street next Tuesday, it's going to be magical. I can't even begin to imagine what they got up to at Halloween.
