THE LEATHERBOUND BOOKS – “I COULD HAVE BEEN”

The Leatherbound Books are a Burlington, VT based band fueled by delicate song-structures, a heaven-bound voice and notable comparisons to bands like Ida, The Secret Stars and The Pastels. Their ability to channel a forgotten era of utterly earnest Twee is a truly refreshing thing to hear. On their video for “I Could Have Been” cavorting star-people from public domain footage plan an abduction that speaks to the loneliness than it does any sort of malice. I wonder if all those abductions happened because aliens were just lonely and socially awkward?
