Billie The Vision & The Dancers
When the weather is really crappy and grey outside i turn on one of my happy-favorites Billie The Vision & The Dancers. They always makes me smile :)
I don't know much about them, but they fell into my life 2+ years ago thanks to an ex who saw them live in a festival. And that is their strength, they are out there performing and getting a very dedicated fan base.
If you dig under that joyful indie-pop-band shell you will find that they are always expressing happiness and joy, but also more complex feelings of loneliness. Its sometimes sad, but most of the time with a positive melody in the background somewhere. A who is that guy Pablo that keeps popping up in the songs? :)
They have released an album every year since 2004 and im pretty sure that they will keep up the same kind of productivity in the future, this is a band that really loves making music and you can hear it! The latest album I Used to Wander These Streets id definitely on my top 10 list of 2008. A few of my favorite Billie The Vision... songs are: Summercat, Ask for More, Apologize, City, A Beautiful Night in Oslo, Overdosing With You and I Belong To You just to name a few.
Luckily for you, their music is available as free downloads on their website and on last.fm. Have a listen, i know you wont regret it! Btw. make sure you make a donation when you download.
