Coach Hop – I Like Taylor Swift
“Thunderous power-pop” – Consequence of Sound
I Like Taylor Swift is a power pop anthem and debut single from Florida born, London based Charlie Laurence aka Coach Hop. I Like Taylor Swift channels the sounds of Fountains Of Wayne, They Might Be Giants, Weezer and on the surface is a love song to the titular pop star but upon closer inspection is an observation on the state of the modern music industry.
I Like Taylor Swift ‘s animated video is a Vimeo Staff Pick and created by BBC animators Laurence Honderick & Sam Humphries (aka The Dink) using techniques which are an industry first. There’s a pink vinyl 7″ version of I Like Taylor Swift available for Record Store Day & is the first release from London’s Scratchy Records Singles Club – to be celebrated with a show at the Hope & Anchor, Islington on Friday 20th April.
