“Romance Is Boring” (Live on Carson Daly) (Video)

    One of the smallest bands to appear on national TV this year must be British indie rockers Los Campesinos!, who surfaced on Carson Daly’s show last night (May 11). Daly does that thing where he introduces the band with a short film—a wise idea, as most viewers of his show probably needed a little time to get their heads around the group’s name.


    The band performed the title track from Romance Is Boring for their major network TV debut, and it was delivered before their own crowd at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. It’s fizzy and slightly discordant indie pop delivered with an infectious enthusiasm by the group, which probably isn’t what the average Last Call viewer was expecting, but kudos to the producers of the show for taking a chance on Los Campesinos!
