Yorkshire’s most mesmerising singer-songwriter and old-school indie crooner, George Boomsma has released their four-track EP ‘Chinatown’, leaving no room to wonder why they’ve featured on BBC Radio 1 and shared stages with the likes of Skinny Lister and Emma Langford.
The title track wouldn’t be out of place on the soundtrack to Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The stylistic dreamy air will allow you to imagine what it would have sounded like if Neutral Milk Hotel aimed to exude a debonair flair instead of enamouring discord. The classical strings give Chinatown a faraway air while you’re being pulled in by George Boomsma’s unimposingly intoxicating vocals.
The live-to-tape recording boasts a stunningly anachronistic feel which won’t fail to pull you out of the misery of the 21st-century. You can grab your aural ticket out of here by heading over to Spotify.
