Ah yes, the Bourgeoisie

You might have heard "You, Me and the Bourgeoisie" before. You may have hard it on an iPhone commercial. Perhaps you're heard this song on a TV show, or perhaps you heard this in the background of a movie. So it that such a bad thing? I would have never have discovered the Submarines if someone hadn't mentioned that the song was on an iPhone commercial.

This boy-girl pop duo, consisting of Blake Hazard and John Dragonetti, has a sunny, accessible sound that seems just sparkles with pop sensibility. Even the biography of the band is utterly charming and sweet. The story is that the two members had dated, broke up, kept writing songs about their breakup and the songs brought them back together again. The tracks form their debut was comprised of these songs and as a wedding gift, a friend of theirs produced the album.

It's like an indie fairy tale, and their latest full-length release Honeysuckle Weeks and EPs Honeysuckle Weeks 1 and 2 Remixed aren't doing too badly either!

Met them when the toured through Minneapolis a month back--two of the nicest people, honestly can't say enough about them.

While their last album is great, you've got to go back to 'Declare a New State!' for their best stuff.
