RELEASING “TOO YOUNG” DIGITAL SINGLE JUNE 19TH

Tom Williams & The Boat will release their new single “Too Young” on June 19th via Wire Boat Recordings/Moshi Moshi Records. The third single to be taken from their new album Teenage Blood, “Too Young” is an uplifting and buoyant pop track. A wonderful blend of lilting harmonies and melody, lead by a catchy guitar riff which sees Tom’s vocals taking a softer, gentler tone. The band have also released a music video for the single, comprised of 1500 drawings done by Tom and arranged and animated into a motion picture.


Teenage Blood has been steadily winning praise on both sides of the Atlantic. Clash Magazine weighed in with an 8 of 10 review that labeled Tom Williams & The Boat “willfully individual,” as a dexterous band that “ooze and explode thrillingly with each emotional turn.” The BBC took note of the “sawing violins and an overall rock-roots grit” found in the songs, while the title track “Teenage Blood” was chosen as one of Esquire Magazine’s Top Songs To Listen To in 2012.

Already receiving steady attention and BBC Radio play for their early EPs, it was at the 2010 Glastonbury Festival that Tom Williams & The Boat truly broke out, playing an extraordinary 5 sets as finalists of the festivals own “Emerging Talent Competition.” They self-released their debut LP Too Slow in February 2011, on their own Wire Boat Recordings to critical praise in the UK, leaving anticipation for their forthcoming follow up high. The band began work on their second album, Teenage Blood in March 2011, recording in their long time HQ – a working brewery, in the heart of the Kent countryside. As with their debut album, BBC engineer Simon Askew was yet again behind the mixing desk.
