Saturday's Song: Tout Va Bien - Pizzicato Five

In need of a pick me up due to this dreary winter weather we're having stateside? Look no further than Pizzacato Five!

Pizzacato Five (also known by the shorthand PV or P5) are a Japanese pop outfit recognized for their playful sound and huge music output. Their sound is a blend of Baroque Pop (a la Beach Boys), Yé-Yé, and Bossa Nova. They're said to have been inspired in part by acts like the Moody Blues and my personal favorite The Free Design.  

I'm so entranced by their lead singer, Nomiya Maki, for her bright vintage and vintage inspired wardrobe, and energetic performances. The art direction for their videos is equally fun, paying homage to 60s pop culture iconography like the works of Jean Luc Godard, Funny Face and Twiggy.
That's all for now, enjoy your weekend!
