Quantcast
Watch "Vamala" by British Brother Duo CHAMPS

Boys who sing like girls and sound really great with it.


There are several things about this video and song that fondle a sweet spot.

1. CHAMPS are a couple of boys who sing like girls and whose harmonies recall Fleet Foxes meets Empire of the Sun / Pnau meets Hot Chip.

2. The video largely stars a girl modern dancing her way around a white room while cartoon shapes expand and collapse with and around her.

3. CHAMPS are two brothers who hail from the Isle of Wight, a small island off the southern coast of England that's most famous for having a succession of killer festival lineups back in the late 60s which included everyone from The Who to Janis to Jimi to Miles Davis to Leonard Cohen to Bob Dylan to the Doors. Unfortunately these days the festival books artists like Calvin Harris :(

4. CHAMPS' second LP, Vamala, is out now via Play It Again Sam.
