WATCH: Boat To Row - 'On Your Own'

"It's easy to get down when there's no one else around, when there's no one else to tell you that you're doing pretty good."

I had the joy of meeting Michael from Boat To Row when he played a solo support set for a show I was helping to promote in Oxford a couple of years ago. I remember being blown away that he'd driven from Birmingham especially for the show, putting in as much effort playing a twenty or thirty minute set to what was an early evening (and small) pub crowd as he might have done to a sold out Brixton Academy, for instance. I was drawn in and loved discovering their first album I Found You Here - in particular the track Handsome Beats, which I still adore.

They're in the midst of a campaign to lead up to the release of their second album (but sadly got caught up in the PledgeMusic problems recently) and have just released second single On Your Own. They've shared a music video directed, filmed and edited by Thomas Wagstaff and Azeem Choudhry in and around Birmingham (particularly The Electric Cinema). It's a fun video for a brilliant track and I'm getting some Fleet Foxes vibes which is certainly always a good thing.
