Je Suis Animal

Just discovered this lovely, boy/girl, British/Norwegian, Indiepop band that blends influences from Broadcast, Electrelane, and Lush into a tasty treat.

The video for The Mystery of Marie Roget is fabulous viewing even without the music. Of course, it's styled to look like a 1920's silent film, and borrows some images from the 1928 Bunuel/Dali collaboration, Un Chien Andalou.

The title of the song comes from a short story by
Poe. The girls in particular look incredibly authentic in this:

Their debut album, Self-taught Magic from a Book, has just come out on the Angular Recording Corporation.
