Folky-Summery Vibes

Yesterday was a pretty fun night. I spontaneously made the decision to accompany one of my friends from Uni to a gig. The band in question were Noah and the Whale which were supported by Slow Club. Both were absolutely fantastic and they are so much better live, it must be part of the visual spectacle of the variety of instruments used by both bands. From the ukulele, glockenspiel and a strange Accordian box looking thing. If you wanted to narrow them down to a music category then I guess both would sit in the folk category.

Slow Club

The girl has a beautiful voice and it's such a cute video!

Noah and the Whale
The music is the perfect soundtrack for the summer and I will definitely be adding their CDs to my collection. So below is my outfit for today, influenced by all the summery cute vibes of the gig!

Leopard print T-shirt, Miss Selfridge
Strapless Dress, New Look
Pink scarf, Oasis

  10. glockenspiel would literally mean "bells' play", but we use it to describe the same as you do in english. i just thought it was funny, didn't know about that translation although i though i knew most of the words that are borrowed from german like zeitgeist or doppelganger. thanks for your help ;)
