Forever isn’t long enough.

Label: Amour Foo
Released: August 5th 2016
Rating: ★★★★

Boys Forever may sound upbeat, but under the surface there are both sweet and salty flavours at play.

Created following a bout of depression, which coincided with former Veronica Falls drummer Patrick Doyle [for it is he - Ed] not having a musical outlet for the first time in over a decade, it’s that juxtaposition that allows his self-titled debut album to shine.



Recalling classic Scottish indie pop, it’s a sound that works remarkably well. Echoes of Teenage Fanclub make opener ‘Poisonous’ sound anything but, while single ‘Voice In My Head’ has the sardonic lilt of Belle & Sebastian. Forever isn’t long enough. Stephen Ackroyd

Rina Sawayama was always going to be a pop mastermind, but with her debut album out and already gaining the kind of critical acclaim that makes a career, she’s quickly becoming something far more than she ever imagined.
