Princeton, Love Is All @ The High Dive

Princeton play the High Dive April 14

Los Angeles-based indie pop band Princeton count among their influences New Order (and also Something Else-era Kinks, Serge Gainsbourg, Arthur Russell, Scott Walker, Yo La Tengo and Gilberto Gil) which no doubt accounts for my being reminded of a certain type of New Wave band upon hearing them for the first time. I’d be more likely to class them with a pre-Top 40 success Spandau Ballet, but you’re free to judge for yourself when the band comes to Seattle for a show at the High Dive on Wednesday, April 14 with Swedish indie punk band Love Is All.

Touring to support their debut album Cocoon of Love, Princeton consists of twin brothers Jesse & Matt Kivel, Ben Usen and David Kitz. The band is named after Princeton Street in Santa Monica, where they grew up. Check them out ahead of time by viewing the video for “Calypso Gold”

Love Is All is ex-Girlfriendo members Josephine Olausson, Nicholaus Sparding, and Markus Görsch plus Johan Lindwall and Fredrik Eriksson. To get a taste of their work see the video for their charming song “Kungen”.

Show time is 8pm, 21+, $10 at the door or in advance through Brown Paper Tickets.
