I heard this gorgeous slab of sultriness on a restaurant terrace during a swelteringly hot day last month while on a brief holiday. The waitress (or was she the proprietress?) very kindly checked the title (it was part of a Spotify playlist)--it was a thing called "April" by a band or someone called Beaumont. 

With a little research I've discovered that Beaumont was a Swiss band active from 2001 to 2005 consisting of Gael Kyriakidis (aka Pony del Sol, vocals), Mathieu Kyriakidis (keys), Simon Cochard (guitar), Meinrad Thalman (bass) and Fabrice Seydoux (drums). [Source]

It took a while to find a version I could hear (I don’t have Spotify) but Mr. K is not one to give up easily. I eventually discovered it on SoundCloud, under the name of Beaumont keyboard player Mathieu Kyriakidis, who wrote the music. His sister Gael (here with feathered friend) wrote and joyously sings the lyrics. 


What a magical holiday moment that was!
