Song of the Day: "Starling" - This Many Boyfriends


Simple, quick and oh-so-sweet pop from these Northerners. I first saw This Many Boyfriends play the Old Blue with FAMY and Kurran & The Wolfnotes, and they fared pretty darn well. They wear their influences on their sleeves, play with balloons in the middle of their shows and don't seem to really care that they're just on the dangerous side of twee. Fair play.

It's worth mentioning that they're due to release this single as part of a fanzine package, full of recipes, little quizzes and other handmade goodies that will make girls who wear satin bows in their hair want to implode with happiness. Cute is what they do. It's just what they do.

If you want to see this euphoric pop in action, head to one of their many upcoming UK dates:
