Following the demise of The Yetis, Nick Godard has been keeping busy with other projects, notably The Persuasion, and now this Gainsbourg-tinged bit of relaxed indie.
"Ciroc (feat. Arabella)" recalls those Mick Harvey records where the ex-Bad Seed recorded Serge Gainsbourg classics in English, as well as some of those Pete Doherty solo recordings. The melody here made me think of Pulp for some reason too. All that being said, Godard is on the right path with this one and while the results are far from the jangle-pop of The Yetis, his work is still supremely listenable.
