En Attendant Ana get compared to Stereolab quite a bit, and those comparisons aren't unfounded. The Parisian band has that playful kind of sound that combines indie rock with 60's bossa nova. Their latest single, "Same Old Story," has that retro cool vibe you get with that classic 60's sound, and, if anything, En Attendant Ana lean a little more heavily into the 90's indie rock sound than Stereolab ever did. There is much more of the 90's indie rock noise throughout, especially towards the climax of the song. "Same Old Story" is as groovy as it is delightful. It's just a fun, breezy, and noisy romp.
You can watch the video for "Same Old Story" below. Principia is due out February 24 on Trouble in Mind, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on En Attendant Ana, check out the band's Twitter and Facebook.
