Pick of the Week 25 - Princess Chelsea
The perfect way to start a new year of 'Pick of the Weeks' is this session based recording of our favourite New Zealander Princess Chelsea. It's a cover of the old White Town song, but Chelsea quirks it up with the downtempo backing, lots of expert xylophone tinkling and a generous helping of that voice. It's a great video clip as well, with lots of extreme close ups of xylophoning, Chelsea's headphoned profile and the moustachioed base player who provides hope for all middle aged men that they too could still be in a band one day. The last thirty seconds is pure magic and I could listen to it on a loop forever.
