Figurines, ‘When the Deer Wore Blue’ (The Control Group)
A Danish band who have clearly put in their time studying American indie rock, Figurines at first sound overly familiar, but before you can Clap Your Tapes Say Midlake, their third album sneaks in enough sunny ’60s pop and astral strangeness to change the game. This is no slavish style bite by Euro pretenders; it’s a delectable refiguring. From jaunty and tinkling (“Childhood Verse”) to brooding and pretty (“Good Old Friends”), Figurines don’t do anything new, but they do everything amazingly well.
