Psychedelic freakbeat duo Bosco Rogers have announced that their second EP ‘French Kiss’ will be released via Bleepmachine Records on April 27th mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Temples, Johnny Marr, Kevin Devine).
The follow up to last December’s much talked about debut ‘Googoo’ EP, that featured classic whistle-pop track ‘The Middle’, (Single of the Week at the Guardian and 6Music Rebel Playlist winner) sees Barthélémy Corbelet and Delphinius Vargas move deeper into psyche-pop songwriting with four new sun-scorched tracks written in perfect time for the spring months ahead.
Lead track ‘French Kiss’ swirls in upbeat 60s psychedelia with Bosco’s signature fuzzed-out dirty guitar sound and a chorus perfectly constructed for the romantics out there.
“‘French Kiss’ is a song about beautiful mistakes, small town love affairs, drinking too much, being a hot mess, saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, missed opportunities and the fatalistic nature of love. Pessimistic optimism from a hopeless romantic”, says Corbelet.
The upbeat drums on this new EP keep rolling on ‘Banana Sock’, a wild, rumbling punk rock stomp that would not feel out of place on a road trip along Route 66. This is followed by ‘Buttercup’, a Stooges-esque slice of fuzz-pop complete with sweet B52s style harmonies and the unexpectedly sentimental, anti-love waltz of ‘Shelter’, one of the best lullaby tunes you will hear this year.
Taking inspiration from bands like The Monks, The B-52’s and Guided By Voices, careering forward between 60’s psychedelic rock, new wave and proto-punk, Bosco Rogers hail from the South of England and consist of Barth and Del who are joined on stage by a bunch of wastrels, cranks, waifs and strays for their live shows.
