Mad props to the Dew Process crew for signing these guys last year. Sadly we have not heard any of it on Aussie radio yet but caught this on Youtube a couple of weeks ago. A year after discovering them I’m still not used to the name but their Ben Gibbard come Sufjan Stevens vibe is our cup of tea any day. Oh and they get our lyrics of the week for this:

please don’t play the match maker
please don’t be a player hater
if you dig her recent work
then you should go congratulate her
