Belle and Sebastian Play ‘Sukie in the Graveyard’ and ‘Allie’ on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’
Belle and Sebastian were the musical guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, swinging into faithful renditions of "Sukie in the Graveyard," from 2006's The Life Pursuit, and "Allie," off this year's Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance.
"Sukie" was a particularly fun take, especially when the band breaks it down while frontman Stuart Murdoch and a woman he introduces as Sukie do a little '60s-style psychedelic dancing. And "Allie" features some serious jazz flute from Sarah Martin -- a similar take to the one the band played on CBS This Morning: Saturday back in April.
When Girls in Peacetime came out, we noted the strong disco influence on the band's new record.
Currently, Belle and Sebastian are prepping for their set at the Glastonbury festival, which precedes tours through Europe and the U.S.
