about

French band Beat Mark teams up with british band The Proper Ornaments on a split 7 inches single to embody their friendship built on several gigs around France and England these last years. « Flowers » by Beat Mark is a lovely indie-pop gem that recalls their debut LP « Howls of Joy » published in 2010. Built on the double singing of Karin Schlageter and Julien Perez, some nice jazzy guitar tones evoking the subtle sound of Orange Juice or Aztec Camera, it's delicate and fresh as a daisy. « Two Weeks » is everything we love with The Proper Ornaments, the lovely harmonies of Max Claps (Let's Wrestle) and James Hoare (Veronica Falls, Ultimate Painting), a Byrdsian jangly guitar and something that also calls to mind the pop side of The Velvet Underground. This 7' on Croque Macadam encapsulates the best of both bands, strictly limited to 350 copies, it should be sold-out pretty soon.

For fans of : Sarah Records, Velvet Underground, C86, Byrds, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Ultimate Painting, Aztec Camera
