Arts & Crafts have announced the release of Old Boys, the new EP from Toronto natives Bishop Morocco, due out on March 13. In advance of the forthcoming EP the title track is available for free download here in exchange of an email address.
Bishop Morocco is the musical vision of James Sayce and Jake Fairley. The Toronto-based duo recorded its 2008 self-titled debut at a homemade studio in their Groningen, Netherlands apartment, earning international attention from the likes of Parisian tastemaker Collette and helping develop a strong following at home in Canada. Two years later, Bishop Morocco arrives on Arts & Crafts with Old Boys, a six-track EP on which the band strays from its original new wave influences towards a thicker, more contemplative sound, aided by the addition of Ian Worang on guitar and Jon McCann on drums.
A savvy delivery loaded with smart electronic instrumentation and richly textured melodies, Old Boys was recorded at another homemade studio, this time inside Fairley’s mom’s guest bedroom in west Toronto. The new EP is poised to captivate new fans and satiate an already dedicated following of critics and trendsetters. Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming tour dates as well as performances at SXSW.
