LISTEN: Boat To Row - 'Spanish Moss'

Of all the musicians I had the pleasure of meeting while living in Oxford and working for Tigmus, running the door for various shows around the city, notably one of the loveliest was Michael of Boat To Row, who was playing a solo set for us. As far as I recall, he had driven from Birmingham especially for the show, and wasn't phased by a small crowd, delivering a beautiful set. I caught the full band playing a Sofar Sounds Oxford show a few months later in a bicycle café (where I in fact borrowed their film camera and took this rather snazzy shot of them between tracks) and loved their set. Their 2015 debut record I Found You Here is beautiful - I particularly love the track Handsome Beats

Brilliant  news! They're back with a new track and a new record is imminent. Spanish Moss is taken from Rivers That Flow In Circles, due for release in early 2019. To help with the final touches, the band have set up a Pledge Music campaign to take pre-orders for the record, offering the likes of tea towels, tote bags, house gigs and cover songs in return for pledges. Take a listen to the track below and show your support for the campaign here.
