With one foot planted firmly in modern indie rock ground and the other wobbling about, Boys in a Band look backwards into music history, eclectically mixing that which they see fit into a musical melting pot of well calculated chaos. The reckless and danceable rhythms of revivified classic rock n roll, the weighty and lofty vitality of pre-Elvis black gospel and blues, the epic grittiness of old school country, the bare idealism of hippy protest singing and the flashy groove of seventies cock rock – these diverse and, at times, more than slightly contradictory elements exist in perfect harmony in Boys in a Band's universe, thanks to their utterly infectious and youthful charisma, of which they are brimming. The band has and is going to play several hot shot festivals since they started playing in September '06 – Roskilde (DK), Iceland Airwaves (IS), EuroSonic (NL), by:Larm (NO), Canadian Music Week (CA) and SXSW (US). Being experts at finding valuable time between big festival gigs, the Boys just finished recording their debut album in London town with legendary producer Ken Thomas (Sigur Rós, Dave Gahan, M83). The album will be out later in '08 and there's no doubt it will trigger the fastest rolling musical revival since Be Bop A Lula. Amen.
