Show Review

Belle and Sebastian are following the release of their latest album Write About Love almost immediately with a video for the track "I Want the World to Stop." Just like the track, the video is swooning and wistful, while danceing along the lines of shoegaze. Actually, besides the drummer using the kick drum pedal, I don't think any of the band members even lift their feet from the floor once throughout the video. The song's great though. Also, what is that guy talking about at the beginning of the video? It must be a Scottish thing.

Artist Bio

Belle and Sebastian are an indie pop band formed in Glasgow in January 1996. They are often compared with acts such as The Smiths, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake. The name Belle & Sebastian comes from Belle et Sbastien, a 1965 children's book by French writer Ccile Aubry, later adapted for television and an anime. Though consistently lauded by critics, Belle & Sebastian's "wistful pop" has enjoyed only limited commercial success.
After releasing a number of albums and EPs on Jeepster Records, they are now signed to Rough Trade Records in the United Kingdom and Matador Records in the United States.
