New Music from Couple
On TOMH's first playlist I posted a song by Couple, a power pop quartet from Malaysia and one of my favorite new bands from anywhere. They are about to release their 2d album "Teenage Disc Fantastic" which is a pretty apt description of how it sounds. Although frontman/songwriter Aidil is a successful lawyer in his 30s, there is a kind of youthful innocence to his songs that sounds totally natural and not at all forced or put on. Although "Teenage..." is not on sale yet you can listen to it at the band's Reverbnation page. If you like power pop ala Teenage Fanclub, Matthew Sweet or for that matter early Beatles or Lovin' Spoonful you really need to give Couple a listen.
