Ahead of the European release of the ‘Hobby Limit’ EP via Super Fan 99 Records any day now, Boy Scouts (aka Taylor Vick) talked us through the Top 5 Influences that shape her sound. It’s a wonderful list and one we’d quite happily have as a playlist for any journey…
Marika Hackman – ‘Boyfriend‘
My friend showed me Marika Hackman’s music recently and I’ve been super into it. This song is badass. I love the overall tone her songs have, and how great and clever and great her lyrics are.
Frank Ocean – ‘Chanel‘
I’m in awe of everything Frank Ocean creates.. I tend to get stuck on one song of his at a time and the past few months it’s been Chanel. I love the base piano track and the vocal melody he sings towards the end. His voice conveys emotion in such beautiful way.
Penguin Cafe Orchestra – ‘Perpetuum Mobile‘
This song is unreal and I’ll never not be blown away by it. I read on Wikipedia that it was written in a 15/8 time signature and the melody seems like it ends and repeats one beat ahead of when it should, and that’s what gives it that feeling of motion… I freaked out when I read that while listening to it cause that’s so cool.
