Your tears don't shake my world like Britney Spears.

ON ROTATION: The Boy Least Likely To – It Could’ve Been Me

tbllt

Way back in 2005, British duo The Boy Least Likely To released “Be Gentle With Me”, a perfect indie pop song with an adorable video featuring animal puppets playing instruments and a pre-Office Rashida Jones playing the manic pixie dream girl. 8 years later, for their third studio album “The Great Perhaps”, Owen & Pete Hobbs are still hopelessly twee, quietly chucking out little pop gems about the woes of love and growing up. New single “It Could’ve Been Me” is one of its (many) highlights. A duet with the ever-lovely Gwenno Saunders from The Pipettes, it finally got a suitably meet-cute music video which you can view right below. Just try not to grow anime eyes all over afterwards. You’ve been warned.

 

 

The perennially twee kid in me can’t help but fall in love with this album. It makes a lovely soundtrack for summer daydreaming. “The Dreamer Song”, another sure favorite, serves well as the band’s manifesto. If you like both tracks featured here, a full Spotify session is highly recommended.
