New Artist of the Day: Filthy Boy
James Endeacott is to raw talent what a divining rod is to water. I reckon he vibrates when he spots a hot new band. He has brought us The Strokes, The Libertines, The View and his latest discovery is no less talented and unique. Meet Filthy Boy.
Filthy Boy is a new alternative band from South London, formed ofParaic Morrissey, Michael Morrissey, Harry Weskin and Benjamin Deschamps.
If I close my eyes when I listen to Filthy Boy, it feels like I have been transported back in time to some mid-60”Â²s dark and probably aromatic hole named something like The Cave or The Cellar.
I first heard the Naughty Corner lyrics and I was intrigued, then I heard Spiral Eyes and Waiting On the Doorstep and I was in love. I feel voyeuristic as I listen”Â¦like peeking in someones bedroom window to catch them doing the nasty. I am fascinated by the words, the deep sultry tones and the hot guitar licks”Â¦I want more.
Watch the new videos Waiting On The Doorstep and Naughty Corner then visit Filthy Boy’s band-site and listen to Spiral Eyes and see what you think.
And here’s the new “Naughty Corner” Video. (inspired by a 50’s fetish film director called Elliot Castle)
You can get a free download from Filty boy’s Bandcamp.
