Today, the score to any sequel to Amélie could smoothly transition from original Amélie music director Yann Tiersen to either Beirut, Detektivbyrån, The Octopus Project or One Ring Zero. Thus is the state of this side of pop music today: ornate/ dynamic european-fused flair.
For now, I'm giving the nod to "Detective Byran" based exclusively on Anders Flanders' bangs having crept well up and past Amélie Poulain territory!
Check out the set up for Detektivbyrån's recent live, studio performance: glock, keyboards, drums, toy piano, accordion... butterfly prints everywhere... nifty hairdo. They got it all! Oh, and the music that flows from them... positively mesmerizing:
