A serious session of seven degrees of separation courtesy of MySpace led me to the music of Boa Constrictor. The band is huge by indie pop standards with a total of 6 members. As a result their sound is fuller than most and besides the regular indie pop comparisons I could make (REM, any New Zealand band from the 80′s, or even the Cranberries) they’ve got a bit of a Beach Boys vibe.
They’ve got a split CD-R out now on Cloudberry here.
P.S. And completely unrelated (plus he’s from the UK) but I love the indie pop of Kevin McGrother.
