Malajube - 'Montréal -40° C'

I don't normally listen to French-Candian rock, so forgive me if I'm little behind on this find.

The band is Malajube and the song is 'Montréal -40° C.' And even though I have no idea what is being said in the lyrics, the tune is just oh so catchy in a strange, weird way. In fact, AMG's Tim Sendra has described the band's music as:

Flaming Lips-style weirdness, a dash of Radiohead majesty, traces of early Mercury Rev's kitchen sink approach to recording, some Arcade Fire drama, a bit of post-punk à la Franz Ferdinand and tiny scraps of chamber pop iconoclasts like Sparklehorse, Sigur Rós and Mew here and there."
