Set for release on 24th June, Speedboat have announced their new EP ‘Better Men’.
“It’s more personal and a little more socially engaged than the last EP,” the duo - aka Johnny and Will Griffiths aka the Blue Jean Brothers aka Musk and Hook - explain. “Whilst the romance is still there, it’s a little more real this time.”
Sharing new track ‘Sadie Grey’ alongside the news, the song is an “abstracted retelling of Johnny’s experience trying to visit his girlfriend in France”. “After jumping through endless bureaucratic, post-brexit-bullshit hoops; it’s difficult not to feel criminalised when crossing borders these days, even when you’re only crossing for love.”
Check it out now below.
