Friday Diversion

Hold Your Horses! is a French band that apparently includes a few American kids (the progeny of diplomats I read somewhere), so they sing in English (at least what I’ve heard). I’d put them roughly in the same artistic corner as that inhabited by locals The Low Anthem with maybe a little of The Polyphonic Spree thrown in. Anyway, HYH! has gone viral with this neat video to their song “70 million”, which is a campy pastiche of the band members recreating various paintings (here’s a list of them), with the men taking a lot of the female roles.

I’ve now fulfilled by high-culture quota for this month.
