Princeton – Ms. Bentwich

Another literate indie pop combo to savour, well you’d hardly expect anything else with a name like that would you? Princeton come from L.A. but their latest EP ‘Bloomsbury’ was inspired by a year spent in the English capital. ‘Ms. Bentwich’ is the second track and what a perfectly orchestrated piece of chamber pop it turns out to be. From the gently tweeting birds that kick it all off to the victorian sounding instrument at fade out this is a piece of music blessed with a myriad of delights. The Kinks are a stated influence and it shows in the studied (!) yet loose-limbed vocal melodies. Potential to burn then, can’t wait for their debut long player. KD
