You may not be the most familiar with Taylor Vick who performs under the name Boy Scouts, but that should change soon. with a new album Free Company due in August and a tour with Jay Som, their new single “Get Well Soon” should make you an immediate fan of their music.
Opening up with a mixture of acoustic guitar and tremolo tones, Vick’s vocals alone should draw you in. With plenty of Elliott Smith vibes, the song has a tender stride where the drums hit at just the right place and the song immediately stays with you. There’s a mystical way in which Vick ties the vocals in against the acoustic that tugs at your heart while making your head sway in all of its upbeat goodness.
“Get Well Soon” can be streamed on all platforms or purchased from all digital music stores while Free Company can be pre-ordered directly from Anti- Records ahead of its August 30 release. Boy Scouts will be on tour starting September 11 at Rebel Lounge in Phoenix, AZ until November 02 at High Watt in Nashville, TN. A complete run of their tour dates can be found here.
