French Films, ah, the retro face-lift of Finnish mellow indie rock. The boys are here, after a successful tour, with a new and sunny ear bit. Sliding oh-so-smoothly to all those thrilling European summer festivals. Exciting. These guys are so cheerfully sullen but overwhelmingly cuddle-able that it just might move your gloomy bones into a rather vivacious direction. ‘When People Like You Filled The Heavens’ is a perfect combination of bittersweet subtleness and pansy badass. The surfy beat and airy harmonies, together with that jangle-pop bass and elastic guitars just go together as checkered frenzy of peachy tame rock. Catchy, fuzzy, poppy and summery. Rollicking joy.
“Let’s take a trip to the sunny side.”
