The Limiñanas – Garden of Love (feat. Peter Hook)

What happens when you combine classic French pop sensibilities with a hero (of mine and others) of the bass guitar? You get The Limiñanas introducing the world to their forthcoming album Malamore with the video for their single Garden of Love, which features Joy Division, New Order, Revenge, Monaco, Freebass bassist Peter Hook. (To cut a long story short, Love Will Tear Us Apart was the first song I learnt to play).

Back to the single, it’s a lush affair. The duo of The Limiñanas are married couple Lionel and Marie Limiñanas, and they are on the guitar, bass, keyboards and vocals, and drums and vocals respectively, with Hook overlaying his unique sound throughout and contributing chorus vocals. His playing adds a recognisable tinge that doesn’t take away from the core.

You can check the video out below. I’ll also be hoping to cover the album nearer to its release in the middle of April.
