This Many Boyfriends - Young Lovers Go Pop

A new single released today (Aug 22) by Leeds five-piece band, This Many Lovers titled "Young Lovers Go Pop" definitely calls to mind some catchy old Cribs' songs like Mirror Kissers or Hey Scenesters.

The band has really developed their sound in comparison to last summer's 7 track EP "Getting A Life With" which contains some great tracks indeed, but seemed wanting of higher production like this new single showcases.

Steve Lamacq of BBC Radio6 calls This Many Boyfriends his favourite new band and if you live in the UK, you can see an interview he conducted with the band HERE.

From the band's website:

"This Many Boyfriends are an indie pop band from the North. We bonded over a shared love of playing pop music far too loud in rooms far too small. We have been through more lineup changes than The Fall before settling on the current one: Richard on lead vocals, Tom on bass guitar, Laura on drums, Dan on lead guitar and Pete on rhythm guitar and backing vocals."

"We're named after a Beat Happening song, and people have very nicely compared us to Orange Juice, The Cribs, Hefner and The Smiths. We are also influenced by the likes of PJ Harvey, The Slits, Spearmint, Jonathan Richman, Otis Redding and Joy Division. Richard likes Paul Simon so much that he wrote a song about him!"
