French girls singing about Spain while trying to make it in America? Ambitious!
Signed by NYLON Records (the same people who make pop-counter-culture rag, NYLON Magazine), this is The Plastiscines first single with the label. And not only does the video look like it was pulled straight from the pages of NYLON Magazine - it looks like they styled the whole thing, too (Look at those outfits! That makeup! The shoes!).
A reviewer on iTunes likened the song to same feeling you got when you first heard The Ting Tings. Another called the girls a super pop version of The Donnas (which I think is a tremendous miscalculation), but I do understand the comparison. It's about having fun - not making sense. They all sing along. The band members play their own instruments and don't overact it when they play. Although I do get the feeling that their instruments could double for accessories just as easily. But that's probably because NYLON had a lot to do with it.
Despite that! Let's get down in Barcelona, okay? Forget that they love fashion, forget that a magazine probably staged the whole thing. Focus on the happy in the music and the cuteness of the video, instead.
