Blue House - "John the Unready" (video) (premiere)

London's Blue House makes lovely, intricate indie pop music so light and airy.

London's Blue House makes lovely, intricate indie pop music so light and airy that the melodies could be pasted on gentle rolling clouds passing above your head. "John the Unready" is one of two tracks that the duo, James Howard and Ursula Russell, released on September 9th via Canvasclub, Canvasback's imprint for singles by up and coming musicians. Hushed "ba ba ba's", understated guitar lines, languid synth washes create a state of utter dreaminess. The video is animated and featuring a rabbit. Howard says, "Respect to Tjoff Koong Studios for making something so good with my cryptic instruction that 'I imagine the video involving a rabbit.'"
