Generator ^1st Floor by Freelance Whales.

Beautiful harmonics with an antagonising suspense that’s so worth the wait.  Accompanied by an accordion and warm vocals, and a many more instruments ranging with a banjo, acoustic and electric guitar, synthesizer, bass and the all important glockenspiel.

The history of the band is quite fascinating with their popularity gained from playing in the subways in New York, their home town.  Originally meeting through Craigslist and through friends they formed in 2008.  They’re music, such as this song seems to be highly popular in the commercial world and has been used for a wide range of adverts, even including twitter (which I didn’t think really needed to advertise itself).  Currently touring the USA, let’s hope they have plans to visit the UK.
