The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness – “Play (On My Mind)”

Scottish/Spanish duo The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness let out the first single from their upcoming sophomore LP. Despite the Feelies-nodding band name, the duo push much further into the sunshine soul of power pop here, dipping into the ‘90s earnestness of Teenage Fanclub, Velvet Crush, Sloan, and early Big Star or The Hot Dogs out of the Ardent camp. The band recorded this record apart, trading takes from their respective encampments in Edinburgh and San Sebastián. The song is dazzlingly bright but with a light afternoon haze that bends the colors in muted golds and yellows. Crackling drums propel the song, but its the swooning ‘90s guitars and full-sail vocal harmonies that really sell this one. The band’s new album Songs From Another Life is out February 5th from Bobo Integral.
