This week, my plans for the show changed suddenly, so I asked the good people of Facebook what they thought I should play this week. However, the good people of Facebook were all out having a dirty weekend in Google+ so the only person who answered me was Robert Halcrow from the band Picturebox. He said that I should play a bit of everything and (this part shocked me) “especially some Picturebox. They’re so groovy”. I’d already decided not to play acoustic stuff this week, because I’ve played a lot of that lately, so there you have it then. An eclectic electric playlist, with added Picturebox.
Picturebox describe their sound as lo-fi pop, melodic music from the cathedral city of Canterbury. They have songs about hedgehogs, football, French pop, tennis, girls, tennis girls, cakes and tea parties. I don’t know why.
As an extra treat, here’s Picturebox’s latest EP ‘YouSay No’, to brighten up your day. You Say No EP (now available to download at Bandcamp) by Picturebox for the bargain price of £2 ($3.16)
