Cruising ’round Paris with the top down and a baseball bat swinging in the air? Why the hell not.
Leave it to the French to do it in style. And we don’t mean Taylor level ‘Style’. No, this is a whole different dimension.
Meet ELEPHANZ, a French indie pop band with a pretty colossal tune called ‘Time For A Change’. It sounds sort of Klaxons’ like in a summer music festival kind of way, which is totally right up our street.
If you’re gonna mock the way they say ‘change’, do it gently please.
Don’t they just look like five mates having a good old time singing along in grandma’s living room?
And you too can recreate this lovely scene in the comfort of your own home, once you learn the lyrics or at least learn to lip synch semi-well.
Natas Loves You’s ‘Got To Belong’ is a sun-drenched indie pop tune with a big chorus. Everything the doctor ordered to get you through this drab rainy weather.
Fun fact: The five-piece band is quite a multicultural bunch. We’ve got a French dude, an American dude, a Finnish dude, a Spanish dude and a Luxembourgish (yes, that’s what you call them) dude. No Scouse, though, which is a shame.
All members seem to enjoy singing to farm animals.
If you can name five popstars from Azerbaijan in five seconds – we’ll drop you a year’s supply of Twix. Only kidding (we will never share Twix).
Before you start searching Wikipedia, here’s a Azerbaijani popstar with quite an interesting story.
Meet Emin, he is not just a singer-songwriter but also a businessman… and son of a Russian billionaire property developer who also co-owns Robert De Niro’s Nobu restaurants where your faves have no doubt chowed loads of sashimi and edamames. Plus, Emin’s wife is the daughter of the Azerbaijan president. Pretty low key stuff.
So with all this going on in his life, Emin still manages to keep a pretty low profile as a pop singer, which has seen him perform around the world including appearing on stage with Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin.
Check out his latest single ‘Woman’ featuring actual women with remarkable abilities to morph into different people.
Blimey! What will they think of next in Azerbaijan?
