“I’ve got things to do, I’ve got homework too.”
Out.of.the.woodwork. That’s the best way to find music, anyway. This young London sextet epitomizes, to a very precise and meticulously crafted “T”, anything and everything that I’ve ever liked about music – folk, pop, indie or otherwise. Only a week off the release of their new EP, Doing My Best, Tom Williams & the Boat probably has a lot to smile about. Williams has a noticeable penchant for post-irony, and is able to be humorous without being flippant. It’s a charming combination. Londoners should pay mind to the band’s few upcoming shows. If you like what you hear (surely, you will), the TW&TB official site has a large collection of free tracks – as well as the band’s current single, “Mary”.
