67* Fred Astaire

Once in a while when you’re feeling low and lacking of motivation, you find songs like this.

I know it doesn’t says “Go on, you can do it!” but there’s something in the rhythm, the refreshing combination in the band (a girl for once in a band) and also the music video that not even the lyrics of love-defeat can bring me down.

San Cisco

Australian indie pop band formed in 2009.

Originally they were named “King George” and I could say it’s good they changed it.

Four members, 3 males and a (hot) female.

Today’s song’s video was nominated for Best Video at the ARIA Music Awards of 2013.

Which btw isn’t as alternative as the band itself and is just fine.

The music’s got a terrific drums introduction followed by the sweet chords of the guitar, lovely vocals and some beautiful solos. And if could add anything else I would say that I love Fred.

…And the enchanting lyrics (english/spanish):

Well, of course I miss you baby
I’ve been thinking lately
That you don’t need me anymore
You’d be better with Fred Astaire
He could take you anywhere
If you ask him to

And God knows
That it’s a common misconception
That I’m the only one for you
And I can take you out for breakfast
But he could take you ’round the world

Fred Astaire’s the man for you

Well, he could buy you a diamond ring
Or he could get you anything
If you ask him to
He probably knows how to dance
And he could fly you to France
And you could do it all night long
