It's been almost a year since we last caught up with indie-pop upstarts Bordeauxxx but they've unveiled some rather splendid news. They will be putting out a mini-album, 'Only Fiction', at the end of September. To celebrate, they're giving away an appropriately joyous free download of 'The Beach Girls And The Monster'.
As with their 'Mother's Ruin' EP, we find strong elements of early Los Campesinos! on the new track, with its bustling mix of twee indie-pop and shouty angst. It's a bit like the Olympics in London - a bit messy but ultimately enjoyable.
Download the track below, and watch video for previous EP track, 'Heartstrings'. And just in case you thought they're French, they're not. Go Team GB! (But if you want them to be French, allez Bordeauxxx!)
'Only Fiction' is released on September 24th through Keep Pop Loud. For more info, check facebook.com/Bordeauxxx.
