With each passing year, a crop of new artists emerge or at least they become closer into view. While we’re loving a lot of the new music we’re experiencing, and act we’ve been excited about is California’s Boy Scouts. With a new album Free Company out at the end of this month, their new single “Hate Ya 2” and the animated video that accompanies it is about as wonderful as we’ve come to expect.
The song has these bedroom pop meets twee moments that stir together to craft a tone that’s like light indie rock. Staying close to what has already come out off the upcoming release, the vocals have a brighter sound that’s at the top of the mix creating a joyful tone. The video has endearing imagery, and in many ways is as playful and touchingly sweet as the song.
“Hate Ya 2” can be streamed on all streaming sites and the video can be viewed above of on YouTube. Free Company is available to pre-order directly from Anti- Records before its August 30 release date. Boy Scouts is on tour beginning September 11 at The Rebel Lounge in Phoenix, AZ until November 02 at The High Watt in Nashville, TN. A complete tour itinerary for them can be accessed here.
