Belle & Sebastian

Belle & Sebastian formed in Glasgow in 1996, and soundtracked our early to mid 2000s with their teenage-fantasy-infused tracks that were both cinematic and subtle. The Glaswegian indie supergroup has almost as many band members as they do songs. Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but if you’re ever lucky enough to see them live, you’ll witness a spectacular dance party featuring more people onstage than in the audience (another exaggeration). They played 2015’s FYF fest in Los Angeles, and released  their eighth studio album in 2015, Girls in Peacetime want to Dance.
