Dear Boy – Love Interest – Single Review

The US britpop quartet Dear Boy released the single Love Interest on the 26th.

Dear Boy

Dear Boy

No, that wasn’t a typo Dear Boy really are from the USA and are one of those all too infrequent musical acts who can traverse the Atlantic Ocean to reflect of indie-rock from either side of the body of water without ending up floundering in the Sargasso Sea.

Love Interest is an anthemic track which would not have sounded out of its depth in the ’90s with its easy gait and catchy melodies strewn in strong fretwork that leaves the audience, no matter where they are in the world, tapping alongside the infectious rhythm.

Slightly later than was signposted in their initial introduction last year, the nine track album (available on bandcamp), peers in the room and quietly progresses around the perimeter prior to filling the empty spaces with a billowing haze from which the listener, unawares, breathes in the herbal soundscape and discovers that slightly sweet smell for the past, roughly twenty nine minutes, was in fact quite a strong heady smoke and remaining in floating good humoured mood long after its conclusion, while searching for the telephone number of the nearest pizzeria.

The middle song is Werewolf.

toledo – Crane Song – Audio

The first song to surface from the album, Crane Song, was also released yestarday as a stand alone single.

Taking an open folk architecture toledo fill the spaces with luscious dreamy scapes of echoing delay through which acoustic guitar winds. The song is very much one of three thirds as part way through the song the tempo and atmosphere changes to a latin-blues filled middle section prior to closing with a dream sequence.
