Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager (Part 1) (Atlantic)

A bo-ho teenage cult-leader with no suicidal suggestions? Worth keeping an eye on.

  • The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager
Single title: The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager
Artist: Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
Sam Duckworth apparently attracted quite a crazy crowd to his recent Carling Festival appearances – I believe 'cult' was the vibe reported. This tale, his second single, is a three-part teenage lament about problems, and issues, and pressures, and ignoring them with beer and friends. Starting with Duckworth tensely snarling over acoustic picking, a drum machine and bass-line break add vital energy and an affirming chorus with ba ba ba's draw the single to a drink-toasting-at-sunset close. A bo-ho teenage cult-leader with no suicidal suggestions? Worth keeping an eye on. [Ally Brown]
