Picturebox (ex-Derrero) - Free Tunes!

Hailing from the Canterbury area, Picturebox are an inventive UK indie-pop group I was alerted to today via e-mail.

Following my quick overview of the output of Derrero, I was told that bassist David Hirst is now in this band.

From what I've played so far, I'm already a fan! A track like "Tennis Girls" recalls the best Godley and Creme; "Xylosong" reminds me a tiny bit of a Brit version of East River Pipe; and "I Got The Pox" charms with both its "Monty Python's Flying Circus" sample and its gently surging silliness -- I dig those drums too!

Here are a few cuts for you to play and download.

There's more on Soundcloud and you can get news of the band on their Facebook group page.
