Bouts - Missteps


Bouts are back with a new track, which is a surprise given the band members don't live in the same continent anymore! "Missteps" is off of their forthcoming EP due early next year, and while the track is short and sweet, it sounds even more confident than they did on their 2013 album "Nothing Good Gets Away", which is no mean feat!

Sweet Baboo - You Got Me Time Keeping

As you should know by now Sweet Baboo's new album, "The Boombox Ballads" is out in August on Moshi Moshi Records. After letting us hear 'Sometimes' and 'Got To Hang On To You' we now have a video for 'You've Got Me Time Keeping'. The song manages to pack a fair bit in in 6 minutes, there's a nice mix of catchy pop with boy/girl vocals (Tender Prey guesting), upbeat brass, some mournful strings before a darker string-led middle section followed by an almost trippy synth ending. Watch below:

Video directed by Mark James and filmed by Ryan Owen Eddleston
