I used to listen to Belle and Sebastian ALL the time. In college I worked at a coffee shop that I opened a few times a week, and I regularly chose Belle and Sebastian as the morning music playlist. Their melodies are upbeat but relaxing, and the mellow vocals were always soothing at 6am. Their style is hard to put into words – their sound is totally unique but I could pick it out anywhere, even if it was a song I hadn’t heard before. They released an album in 2013, The Third Eye Centre, which is a compilation of unreleased tracks and remixes. It’s a lot of fun… definitely give it a listen!
If you like what you hear, get excited because the band is scheduled to release a brand new album in 2014 – a long time coming! Happy Monday 🙂
