Thanks to Paris band/collective Toy Fight for introducing me to the lovely Mina Tindle. Toy Fight handled the arrangements on this song, contributing a classic, timeless feel to complement Tindle's soulful vocals. The result is gorgeous; we can't seem to get enough of this one.

Speaking of Toy Fight (who we really like, have posted on before, and whose record will be out soon): they've also posted a brand new song on their myspace page. The band's eclectic list of influences includes Elliott Smith, Timbaland, The Kinks, Kings of Convenience, Edan, the Elephant Six bands, and the Go! Team (among others), and as ridiculous as this sounds, they all seem to come together seamlessly on this track. Nice work, guys:
