"Popular People" by The Prophet Hens

The number two album on my 'best of 2013' list was the debut LP from Dunedin, New Zealand's The Prophet Hens (list here).  The band has been relatively quiet, at least with respect to recorded output, since then.  But in late June, the second album will be released by hometown label Fishrider Records.  The first single has been released, and you can stream it below.  While the jangle pop approach remains, "Popular People" has a more upbeat feel, and has us eager to hear the rest of the album.

The Prophet Hens are Penelope Esplin (vocals/keys), Karl Bray (guitar/backing vocals), Robin Cederman (bass/backing vocals), and Chris Butchard (drums).
