Band asal Oxford ini adalah soundtrack yang tepat untuk musim panas (atau musim kemarau di Indonesia), karena memiliki beat yang asik buat joged-joged sambil berlibur di pantai (atau sambil membayangkan liburan). Cukup menyegarkan karena cuaca panas akhir-akhir ini memang tidak menyenangkan untuk bekerja; lebih cocok untuk berlibur dengan soundtrack dari Jonquil.

Kalau memang tidak bisa berlibur ke pantai, lagu ini cocok juga buat soundtrack maen bulu tangkis bareng tetangga. Selamat menikmati

dari press release:
Oxford-based group Jonquil has debuted a new video for “Get Up” off of their debut EP, One Hundred Suns, available now on Dovecote Records. Sharing their vibrant brand of calypso-pop, the band made a phenomenal US debut playing three sold-out New York sets in 48 hours. Heading to Austin shortly after, the 4-piece performed to brimming audiences at several SXSW ’11 parties and showcases. “They seemed ready to take on the States with their energetic pop,” KCRW said of one of their live SXSW sets.

The video for “Get Up” is compiled from footage of the Tokyo Olympiad in 1965. Complete with twirling gymnasts, marching drum lines, and long distant runners, the video leaves you with an uplifting sense of “anything is possible.” The tropical melodies shine effervescently alongside the images of triumph, and though the video was completed before the tragic national disasters in Japan, one can see it as a nostalgic hope for happier times.
