#116 heavenly – p.u.n.k. girl

heavenly

who on earth is amelia fletcher? some weeks back, i featured a heavenly song as a companion track to the ridiculously popular chairlift post, so i thought today i’ll give the band a full post to itself. the recognizably jaunty vocals you hear belong to fletcher, who had been instrumental in forming heavenly (and its preceding band, tallulah gosh), which was a defining statement in the twee pop movement in the 90s. unlike other bands, fletcher’s lyrics for heavenly were clever, witty and incisive (and no wonder, she holds a phd in economics) without losing any of its sweetness which was buoyed by the band’s gleaming sound. and being signed to the legendary sarah records must have added to all that charm. here’s the first song i ever heard from them, taken from the even more legendary stella mixtape, something only i have of course.
