Pick of the Week 49 – Very Truly Yours
Turning twee-ness into an art form, Very Truly Yours are one of the few bands that the Pocketbooks could overpower in a wrestling match. They happily skip about with their balloons, red tights and weird little dog and then unleash a song so twee that the combined twee factor of Belle & Sebastian, the Poosticks, Amelia Fletcher and the entire Sarah Records back catalogue is completely blown away. Sadly, I love its gentle harmonies and heartfelt sentiments. It’s a work of twee evil genius! I wonder if they could beat Betty and the Werewolves in a bare knuckle fist fight though?
