Indie pop is international!
Think indie pop and you'll probably think of Camera Obscura or any other band from the Elefant label. Well, the secret is now out - there's a lot more indie pop in the world, and this compilation proves it. 'Peachy little secrets' is packed with 20 poppy gems by bands from all over - from Sweden to USA, from Australia to Brazil! But best yet, a lot of the bands featured here are from South East Asia! That's what I think makes it so special, because many of the "international" indie pop offerings tend to neglect the indie pop scene in this region.
All 4 of my favourite indie pop bands from hereabouts are featured here (Mocca, Serenaide, My Little Airport, and The Marshmallow Kisses), but there are quite a number of lovely new discoveries on this disc. One of them being My Writes, from Singapore.
My Writes - Love in the 60's
This is why I like indie pop - pretty melodies that make you bob in your seat... and smile. =)
Don't wait - hop, skip and jump over to the Fruit Records' label website and check this little secret out! And you can hear a sampler of the cd's tracks at Fruit Records' Myspace page.
