Upon discovering Young And Sexy (MySpace) in the preview rack at KZUU last year, “The Curious Organ” became a quick favorite of mine, topped only by “Conventional Lullabies”. Panic When You Find It also made my personal top 20 albums of 2006. “The Curious Organ” begins with lyrics Time of the season which immediately draw reference to The Zombies as the instrumentation has similarities to the group, though not the song.
I’ve been aching for some time to write more about my favorite Vancouver, BC band. Luckily they put together a lovely music video for “The Curious Organ” which will allow me to do just that.
Set in a warehouse, the video focuses on the dream world of lead male vocalist Paul Hixon Pittman who plays a jokester with an apparent crush on warehouse manager and female vocalist Lucy Brain. Characters explode in confetti after interacting with Pittman; creative and fun, the video fits well with the tune. Personally, I love this band, so it’s no surprise I’m a fan of the video. Oh Young And Sexy, please come to Seattle soon!
