Arthur Beatrice - Grand Union 

I recently read somewhere that British indie rock band Arthur Beatrice is being hailed as the new xx. Whoever said that was smoking crack. I sound more like the xx when I sing in the shower (badly) than these people. I suppose the mellow/Island-y instruments could garner a comparison of sorts, but that's it. So moving on, I really like this (non-xx) song. Orlando Leopard's voice has a folk quality to it, and by utilizing it in a more glossed over environment, Arthur Beatrice has separated themselves from many other bands.
