Express Your Unremarkable Self

The world of BOAT is ultimately cold. Although full of chorus and smash, there always seems to be something underneath, some pensive distraction, like talking to someone with the television on in the background. BOAT seem to have really perfected their entire aesthetic with their new record "Dress Like Your Idols". BOAT have always seemed to say that cool is a thing that, even though we may not like it, we all have to give a try. They have advance hangovers, they're recovering addicts of drugs they never even liked, they sing about being young and having no choice but to squander youth. Their love songs are honest, they come from a true place, but are always sung from echoing halls. Bare-walled, pin-pocked, palm-streaked halls, two-tone and barren. BOAT comes from some kind of post-alcohopalyptic world, where no matter what age you are, you're never too far from the next binge, the next break-up, the next never-was. The sky always has warm gathering clouds, but never a storm, buds on the trees but never never never a leaf. Beer-soaked branches and limbs like sticks, weak but striving. And every night there's a vernissage, a book launch, a CD/vinyl release, an open mic, a non-pro fashion show, an embroidery seminar, a pick-up soccer game, a night-nic (BYOBFFs and wine), and birthday drinks. And all of them are okay. None is worth canceling the other.Posted by Dan at March 4, 2011 3:29 AM
