Above / below average indie song

You know how quantum theory says an electron can simultaneously exist in two separate states ("no" - 99.9% of the world). Well, that's how I feel about today's featured video.

On the one hand, it's a boring, derivative indie song. On the other, I've listened to it three times in a row and the chorus is rattling round my head like a loose ball bearing in a washing machine.

At first glance, the hair styling is reminiscent of A Flock Of Seagulls after a night sleeping rough. Look again, and the lead singer is quite dashing, in a Roger Moore in The Persuaders kind of way.

In the "for" column, they are real musicians, playing real instruments. In the "against" column, the timing is all over the shop.

The band is called Frankie And The Heartstrings - again, this is either brilliant or offensively naff - and they are currently supporting Florence and the Machine on tour.

Have a look at the video and see which way it makes your electrons spin.
