Tugboat Captain are a band in constant development, capable of looking around and incorporating along the way new precious elements to their sound equipment, thus making their music proposal increasingly interesting. In their last single they manage to rework their lo-fi indie pop, mastering a really appreciable song with fantasy and care.
We are near the sound of Belle And Sebastian and Divine Comedy, a baroque chamber pop (and not bedroom pop this time) recorded at the legendary Abbey Roads Studios, where the idea of musical arrangement is to push every instrument to give their best, looking for the right space and always finding some more brilliant orchestral solutions, with a great evolutionary momentum in terms of sound. A good climax in the track, which manages to go from some more distracted moments to some lyrical peaks where visions open towards a darker and more threatening universe.
The South-London based band, always champions of the DIY, and with a long series of concerts on their record, will debut in October with their first studio album, thanks to Double A-Side Records and titled "Rut".Nando Dorelassi
