Unless you get the reference in this Scottish/Spanish duo's name and like the idea of elemental, jangling power-pop/soft-rock.
For those not in the know the band's name refers to New Jersey's wonderful Feelies and their debut album Crazy Rhythms of 1980 (which had a track The Boy With the Perpetual Nervousness).
It has long been one of our Essential Elsewhere albums.
Here The Boys – Andrew Taylor and Gonzalo Marcos – effect a gentle, tight 10 refined pop songs in just 26 pastel-sounding minutes which has just enough of the Shoes and the light end of the reincarnated Searchers in the Eighties to make this even more appealing to Elsewhere's ears.
Yes, the final track In Between is a bit wimpy but . . .
Less frantic than the Feelies and with more dreamscape harmonies.
Nothing more to say than that.
If those references mean something then you too will connect with this.
Just a fraction late for our summer perhaps, but it will keep you warm in the cooler days to come.
