If the shoe fits

Lightspeed Champion and Voxtrot.

Lightspeed Champion is actually Devonte Hynes. Born in Texas, raised in Essex.
Frontman of Voxtrot is Ramesh Maclean Srivastava. Born in Texas, studied in Glasgow.

The thing is this:

The jangly pop sounds of early New Order, The Smiths and Belle And Sebastian have not sounded as fresh for a long long time.

And to think that Devonte is afro-american and Ramesh is, well, he's got indian blood in him. And they are from Texas!

Here's a treat:
Lightspeed Champion : Another Song About Being Alone
Voxtrot : Steven

If you have 6 minutes to spare, the songs will make you smile.
