Today’s new music spotlight is on Speedboat.
Line-up: Will Griffiths (vocals/guitar/synths), Johnny Griffiths (bass/vocals)
About: Speedboat started in 2017 as a home recording project between brothers Johnny and Will Griffiths, who between them, write, perform, and produce all their own work. With gas in the tank and a trunk full of hits, the duo moved out east to Brighton where they would meet Alex ‘Riffs’ Evans, Bruce ‘Bonzo’ McTaggart and Veronica ‘vRon’ Muchitsch who would later become their trusted touring band.
What Hidden Herd say: With a nostalgia-seeped sound that epitomises the extravagance of the mid-Eighties, sibling duo Speedboat are making waves on the south coast with their groove-laden synth-pop. The Brighton-based brothers latest release is a hook-loaded gem swathed in a retro haze. Hit play on ‘High Rise Lover’ below.
For fans of: Part Time, Alex Cameron, China Crisis
