Fortuna Pop! have been responsible for releasing a hugely disproportionate number of the year’s finest records in 2015, with splendid albums from the likes of Joanna Gruesome, The Spook School, Simon Love and Chorusgirl, the latter of whom provide today’s track.
Taken from their self-titled debut album, ‘Dream On, Baby Blue’ wraps up much of what is great about the LP in 3 minutes and 4 seconds of luscious fuzzy jangle-pop that does a cute trick of feeling both nostalgic and familiar and wonkily odd at the same time.
The video was due to be shot on the bandstand at Victoria Park, however having arrived to find it occupied by a group of burly gentlemen practising their boxing skills they packed up their Super 8 camera and quickly relocated to the nearby 19th Century fountain instead, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
Chorusgirl play the Fortuna Pop! Winter Sprinter at The Lexington, London with Flowers & Tigercats on 6th January.
