OK, lets set the scene. Its spring/summer 2012 (Sprummer?) and I'm sat in the living room eating cheerios mixed with coco pops -Couldn't decide between the two so had a mixture because i'm bad-ass like that. Then all of a sudden BOOM! This advert for Radox shower gel comes on. Now if your thinking "Erm...okayyy?? Were are you going with this, Not-so-anon-blogger?" Jam yo' hype and let me finish...so the advert starts playing and I'm not really aware of the television because i'm too interested in the spectacular fusion of crackling chocolaty sensations with little O-shaped whole grain goodness in my cereal bowl,however, my attention is instantly diverted when this amazing song is played in the advert.
(To hear this energizing and intriguing song play the video above)
No song has ever- and I mean EVER- taken such a reaction out of me. I mean, usually when I hear a good song I be like "Yeah, bro this tune is keewl, I'll shazam it later or something..." but, no. Not this time. As if I had no control over my body I get up and start hipster dancing* all over my living room rug. I then rewind the advert over and over and over and-well you get the point- and I'm thinking "Thank you, Sky box for having live pause/rewind...I love you baby." Then the Sky box replies to me "Haha lol. no f u" and says "Live pause unavailable due to lack of space on disk" or something and I cant rewind or fast forward or anything then loose the advert. The song was gone forever. I had lost it. Well until the next Radox advert would come on but I wasn't going to wait that long to be re-united with that special indie song. We had a connection. So I was stood there staring at the telly like "FUUUUUU-GOOGLE!" and run to my iPad to Google the song.
After ten whole minutes of searching (Which is a billion years of google searching time) I found the song. It was these geniuses, Little Comments. These blokes are a little indie trio from Jarrow and Newcastle upon-Tyne -No, I've never heard of it either but asuming its somewere up north England- and they are just so likable. With their unique guitar riffs and their typical indie calls, yelps and hollers, you'd be a fool not to check out their new album "Life is Elsewhere" or the album my Radox advert song came -The song turned out to be called "Dancing Song"- From the album "In Search Of Elusive Little Comets."
They may call themselves little but they've got big things in store ahead of them...
*How to Hipster Dance(In 5 easy steps)
I could explain what Hipster Dancing is but it's much easier just to show you how...
1. Stand up straight, if you're not already doing so.
2. Start bending your knees gently and frequently until your head is bobbing up and down.
3. Spread your arms out and pretend to be an airplane, tilting from side to side.
4. Rotate your arms at the same time
5. With the joint effort of bobbing your knees up and down and pretending to be an airplane with rotating arm you must finaly pull a really serious face at the same time and alas! You have mastered the Hipster dance...
Between hipster dances or if your airplane arms get tired, try standing like a confused zombie swaying from side whilst popping your shoulders as if you're constantly being shot in the shoulder-blade. This is also a form of Hipster Dancing :)
