‘Zut Alors’ is the second of a series of three singles to be released this winter by Edinburgh based ‘oddpop’ quartet MY TINY ROBOTS

Although perhaps a little more conventional in its content than the band’s billing may imply, ‘Zut Alors’ adopts a bit of a ‘Celtic’ feel this time, reflecting the age-old Caledonian / French alliance and association. 

It opens slowly with the strummed acoustic guitar and quietly hummed musings filling me with the dread that this is heading directly down the twee Folk road. Fortunately however, it takes a positive turn after one minute forty-five, when it adopts a more full sound with the bass and drums joining in. It still has a bit of Scottish feel despite the French chorus, with the drumming in particular encouraging thoughts (in my simplistic head at least) of a Braveheart-inspired call to the kilted battlefields of old. 

On reflection, maybe ‘oddpop’ is the correct description after all. 

(Released through Woodthief Records and available now – January 2012)
