Watch: Rocketeer – “Cupid”

26 Feb

If anyone ever tells you that guitar based indie pop can’t be fun and lighthearted, just play them “Cupid” by Rocketeer and try not to look too smug afterwards.

The new song (out tomorrow, 27 February) from this West Country quintet is a smooth piece of finger-clicking, lounge-music-indie. Telling the sordid tale of one girl and her series of indiscreet events, the song demonstrates the lost art of the use of language, lyrical dexterity and sesquipedalian tendencies. The video too, below, is delightfully tongue in cheek and thoroughly enjoyable.

“Cupid” is the first single from their debut album which is due for release later in the Spring.
