The Boo Radleys' Eight follows hot on the heels of last year's highly successful live return and album, Keep On With Falling. It almost feels like the three-piece is making up for lost time after being absent from the music scene since 1998.
The anticipation for the Boo Radley's Eight has been building, and the band recently gave fans a taste of what to expect with the release of the single "Seeker." The song showcases the band's signature sound while also marking the beginning of a new chapter in their career. But that's not all - the Boo Radleys are also celebrating a milestone with the 30th anniversary reissue of their critically acclaimed 1993 album, Giant Steps. The album is considered a masterpiece by many and solidified the band's status as one of Britain's greatest yet underrated acts. For fans eager to complete their collections, this reissue is a true treat.
And back to the present, Eight is a cohesive and classic Boo Radleys collection of songs. According to vocalist and co-songwriter, Simon "Sice" Rowbottom, the tracks were purposefully recorded to fit together seamlessly on the album. The band's collaborative approach is evident, with a greater depth of integration making it harder to pinpoint which member of the group wrote each song.
The Boo Radleys' resurgence in 2021 with Keep On With Falling was met with enthusiasm and praise, and now, with Eight finally here, the band is also here to stay. The band's legacy continues to shine bright, and their return to the spotlight is a cause for celebration for music lovers everywhere.
