Video of the Moment #1437: Longfellow

Newish London band Longfellow release their latest single, for their song ‘Siamese Lover’, today digitally on Label Fandango / Fierce Panda. What will strike you immediately are singer Owen Lloyd’s vocals, rich in both sound and melancholy, while the single as a whole package has a broader, mainstream appeal, owing a lot to its huge-sounding chorus: standing on the edge of the world, we’re standing on the edge of the world / I know it’s hard to fall; baby believe me / standing on the edge of the world, we’re standing on the edge of the world / Siamese love of mine, Siamese love of mine”. (To be clear, I’m talking about the TGTF pleasing Keane / Kodaline-type mainstream appeal, not forced down your throat major label mainstream.)
