How did we miss this? Stuart Murdoch, frontman of the iconic indie band Belle & Sebastian, has put together his own project called God Help the Girl, which he’ll be releasing on June 22nd. The exciting news for today, though, is that the project’s first single was released on Monday! It is conveniently called “Come Monday Night” (clearly come Monday night we still had not picked up on this news) and you can hear it on his myspace, or you can watch the video below!
After the lovely throwback beginning, you’ll hear more than a bit of Belle & Sebastian’s beloved lilt and soft strings. “Come Monday Night” is a delicious sample of what Stuart Murdoch must be doing with this new project–taking Belle & Sebastian’s ability to create intriguing characters and multiplying it by…an album. Only time will tell! For now, enjoy the first chapter of Stuie’s narrative!
