BOSS are the haphazardly charming coalescence of ‘word-of-mouth’, brimming out from within the crevassed-chaos of a gap-toothed smile.
An attention seeking bridge between the alternative-abyss of ‘6 Feet Below The Moon’ and a number of fully grounded self-releases, their latest single ‘Salome’ is a ceramic growler filled with sonically Cephalopod ink; a self-regurgitating thing of beauty, like stewed plumb staining the serenity of a white linen placemat you thought could handle the heat until you set-fire to its front with a naturally bruise-y complex.
As each and every levy of this South-East London trio’s anti-structural architect cements itself impermeable, their infinitely lucid nightmare of contemporary-cacophony, and quasi-Biblical anarchy run’s havoc and entirely unconfined.
This is neither a disillusioned think-piece nor romanticised ‘Wilde’ but BOSS. An endless iteration of re-assembled sounds and ideas, take what you will from the discord but rest unassured that when desire strikes ‘Salome’ executes perfectly.
