Another week has come to an end, and so it’s time for another music video. And for the second week in a row, we have two videos for you to enjoy.
The first video is “Deadbeat Summer” from Neon Indian. Sirius XMU has been playing this lately and it quickly became one of my top five songs of the year. Of course, I discovered it at one of the coldest times of the year, but it’s definitely got a summer vibe. Just imagine playing this in the summertime with all the windows in your car rolled down.
Neon Indian is listed as hailing from Austin, Texas AND Brooklyn, New York. But before we knew that, we here at Cuter Than Pie wouldn’t have been surprised if they had been from Sweden instead, because they reminded us of another band that we really enjoy called Pacific!.
I don’t really remember how I first discovered Pacific!, but they released their debut studio album, called Reveries, in 2008. The CD is reminiscent of 80’s synth pop, and despite being from Sweden, has a California feel to it. It also reminds me a lot of Erasure. Check out the video for “Hot Lips.”
