Stars of Aviation
You could list Stars of Aviation’s single releases on one hand, which considering they’ve been going since 2000 makes them a right bunch of shirkers. However we’ll cut them some slack as a) they have nine members so I guess rehearsals must be a tad tricky and b) they’ve finally found the key to the studio door again as 2010 promises to be a veritable whirl of activity with not only this rather lovely little EP but also their first album too.
The four shimmering slices of sunshine pop here take Belle and Sebastian’s knack for sweet melodies and varied orchestration as their cue card, so you get lovely female harmonies, strings and trumpets as expected but with the added bonus of some magnifique Gallic flourishes from a lusty accordion (and the clever sods even throw in some French lyrics too). And as the packaging is gorgeous and cute too, it’s a right petit gem from the splendid Wee Pop label.
