One of my favorite singers of late (and by “late”, I mean the past two years) is Mika. His first album, Life in Cartoon Motion, is just awesomely fun. It’s full of up-tempo pop-rock that has a bit of edge and strangeness to make it stand out. It also dares you not to get up and dance along. I clearly have no problem with that.
His second album, We Are Golden, isn’t due until September, but he recently released a music video for the title track, and here it is:
The video’s all right. The song is catchy, but not as good as some tracks off Life in Cartoon Motion. Still, it holds promise for the rest of the album. I’m looking forward to it. Granted, it’s going to be hard to top this…
