For want of a better description, when playing a track by the band on a local radio show I once termed The Lovely Eggs as "a cross between Sesame Street and Sonic Youth." Apparently this description reached the band and met their approval!
This kind of twee pop can go either way with me, but in this instance the sense of fun and simple, frequently poignant punk-pop songs greatly appeal to Susan and I, unfailingly making us smile with their wit and whimsy.
This new video from The Lovely Eggs, filmed around their hometown of Lancaster in the UK, is typical of the joyous noise they make, and a real tonic if you feel down in the dumps and are in need of a hug. Enjoy!
