Norwegian electro trio Musique Le Pop recorded their new single Same About You a small house in Finnmark. They had jsut sat through all Twin Peaks episodes and singer Elisabeth Thorsen tried rellay hard to channel the vocals of Julee Cruise’s signature song Falling. The music uses the blueprint of DeVotchKa's How It Ends of Little Miss Sunshine. In fact it comes quite close to plagiarism.
So what we have here is mash-up of two iconic soundtrack songs. It's enjoyable enough, but enterprising copyright lawyers will see an opportunity to build a case.
Same About You and the Safariari remix are released thru Cafe Superstar Recordings. Release date: April 20.
