16/6 Imagine an alternative country but if it was done by The Smiths – doesn’t sound like it would work, does it? Think again. Bosola is a band based in Newcastle that creates innovative music that infuses many genres that shouldn’t even be in the same wheelhouse.
Back with the glistening new release ‘Space & Time’, this track is certainly something to get your ears around and leave on repeat. Exploring the pitfalls of teenage romance all grown up, the track will have you reminiscing on your first love and feeling exactly how you did back then.
Lyrically, Bosola are frustrated. They look back on their childhood sweetheart with heartache and mayhem – two emotions that feel heavily connected within this track.
Moving through a rollercoaster of emotions, the track enters with an innocent, insecure vocal line and acoustic flavour before venturing into an upbeat, dancefloor ready number. Musically the song draws on songwriter Tim Cox’s love of country infused alt rock with artists such as The Lemonheads, The Smiths, John Prine and Bright Eyes, making their mark on the danceable number.
This is a song that shouldn’t work, but really does. LOVE this diverse sound.
