Barnsley based Weedipus will be releasing their debut EP Demo Tape sometime between August and September. They have recently released the second single to be lifted from the EP in the shape of Broken Boy.
It’s an energetic song drawing in influences from garage, fuzzy indiepop, alt-rock and to a lesser extent drone because of the constant vibrating sound which accompanies words about a “golden boy” whose chickens are coming home to roost.
I am not sure where the dreampop tag, which is associated with the band, has come from because they have a sound that is at times far removed from that description. But hey, feel free to call them anything you like so long as it includes the word good.
Until the aforementioned EP is released you can get Broken Boy, and the previous single Places To Go, from here.
