Listen to “Fighting Smiles” MP3
Jonquil was formed in Oxford, UK by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Hugo Manuel. The band has since released two albums including Sunny Casinos and Lions.
On their most recent EP release, One Hundred Suns, one can find the lovely, sunny pop track “Fighting Smiles.” The song is filled with warm, willing melodies that fuse an off-beat percussion track with bright, effervescent vocals reminiscent of Vampire Weekend.
