Former Girls frontman Christopher Owens may not have hit all of the marks with his considerably softened solo debut Lysandre, but the effort does come with a few considerable rewards. One of those is the song, "Here We Go Again," an upbeat bit of modified Belle and Sebastian-style strum (same twee vibes, less lyrical brawn), which is fairly well summed up by its own chorus: "Don't try to get me down / Don't try to harsh my mellow."
Indeed, if the Ryan Owen Eddleston-directed video is any indication, Owens and his non-band band are simply out to have some good clean fun. While on tour in the U.K., they participate in activities like air-drumming, swan appreciation, and walking in an Egyptian manner. In other words, it's a bunch of footage from the road that aims to charm. West Coasters will be able to witness the group's vintage bohemian allure in person later this month.
