Gets me every time.
Australian duo Gypsy and the Cat have been doing the UK rounds for several months now (their first single, 'Time to Wander', was released here back in June) and this recent remix by Aeroplane should earn them some well deserved airtime.
Think high-pitched kaleidoscopic melodies and dreamy 70s-inspired beats. 'Piper's Song' emulates a distinctive and reminiscent breed of sunny laid-back synth-pop that should please fans of MGMT, Passion Pit, Kiwi group The Naked and Famous and fellow Australian synthsters Empire of the Sun.
However in terms of theatricals, pan pipes is fortunately about far as they go (in other words no bizzare walking-on-a-dream-esque getups); a musical focus that may please many.
So sweet, catchy and unpretentious; prove me wrong if it doesn't brighten up a cold winter's day.
