Free Track Friday - This Many Boyfriends

Fresh from throwing their all into a support slot on a sold out UK tour with fellow Leeds' natives Kaiser Chiefs, This Many Boyfriends have announced their next headline show in London will take place at the Sebright Arms on May 14th.

To celebrate this news we're giving away the track which was recorded as a bonus track for the Japanese version of their eponymous debut LP, a cover of possibly the greatest song Talking Heads ever wrote 'This Must Be The Place'.

Known for wearing their musical tastes on their collective sleeve, this cover further charts their love of Talking Heads and is a fitting follow-up to the release of single ‘Tina Weymouth’ in January. A bass heavy, insistant rendition, featuring a guest vocal from Clara Patrick of Just Handshakes, the band have respected the original, whilst bringing in a shuffling rhythm section and deadpan Leeds delivery all of their own. It's a little different from the jangly indie disco fare they've become known for, and proves that there's more depth to This Many Boyfriends than their singles might have suggested.

If you want more (and why would you not?), their self-titled debut album is out now through Angular Records and can be purchased HERE.
