The Baseballs

WEEKEND PICK: The Baseballs aren’t as hard as their name suggests. But their popidyllic covers-on-speed are barrels of fun once you get past the shock of grown men singing that you can "stand under their umbrella".

The Baseballs aren’t as hard as their name suggests – “The Naffs” might be a more accurate name.

These three Germans make their own popidyllic, live-band-minus-the-producer versions of today’s hits at an accentuated tempo.

It’s barrels of fun once you get past the initial shock of grown men singing that you can “stand under their umbrella” and that “you’re hot and you’re cold… so cold”.
