East London rock duo Boy From the Crowd are no strangers to Alternative Control. Reviewed by Jade Siren earlier this year, we’re giving the band a second listen now that their EP Where Bees Come to Die has officially been released.
The five-track offering mixes punk, rock, and blues influences. There are two versions of “All I Need” — one longer version and one three-minutes-and-change single edit, the former taking the time to delve into more bluesy stuff. Frontman Vinny Piana has a gravelly, intriguing voice, but somehow my favorite track was the instrumental one, “Where Bees Come to Die.”
Overall, Boy From The Crowd isn’t going to change your life but they’d be fun to see at a bar. Visit their site to find out when they’ll “bee” at a bar near you.
