An effervescent happy/sad fierce panda one sheet

The Band: SAD BOYS CLUB

The Release: ‘SILVERLINED’

The Format: DIGISINGLE

The Release Date: OCTOBER 5TH 2018

The Truth: SAD BOYS CLUB are from Crouch End in Northern Londonshire. They now consist of Jacob Wheldon (vocals), Tom MacColl (drums), Jake Chatterton (guitar) and Pedro Caetano Leite (bass / vocals). ‘Silverlined’ is their second release on fierce panda records, and follows the summertime sonic meltdown that was ‘Sleepyhead’. It also precedes a Sad Boys Club EP called ‘Yeah People Talk But You’ve Forgotten How To Live’, due out November 2nd and available to pre-order at http://smarturl.it/sadboysclub_yeahep right now.

To tie in with all this fun Sad Boys Clubas will be unpeeling these fruity live dates here:

NOVEMBER 3RD LINCOLN 2Q Festival
(w/ Public Service Broadcasting + Little Comets + Honeyblood + The Slow Readers Club etc)
NOVEMBER 6TH LONDON CAMDEN ASSEMBLY
(single launch party with National Service + Sventlana Smith)
NOVEMBER 9TH YORK FULFORD ARMS (This Feeling show)
NOVEMBER 17TH LEEDS WARDROBE
(Live At Leeds Ones To Watch w/ Dan Caplen + Huntar + Kawala + Another Sky etc)
NOVEMBER 29TH BATH MOLES (This Feeling show)
NOVEMBER 30TH SOUTHAMPTON JOINERS (This Feeling show)

‘Silverlined’ is intelligent, literate alt.rock in excelsis, a huggable Cure-esque ‘80s pop beat underpinning Jacob’s concerned vocals while the shiny chorus encapsulates their casually effervescent happy/sad gothpop vibe. Or, in frontman Jacob’s words: “‘Silverlined’ is a song about what lies behind the mask. The construction of our social face - the wrestle to the top of the pyramid - demands the pursuit of perpetual betterness which is self-inflicted torment. We probably owe ourselves some affection if we can handle it.”

Such is smart life with Sad Boys Club, the newest saviours lurking on the alt.rock block. Over the past eight months they have self-released a furious flurry of hyper-excellent singles with names like ‘Know’, ’15/01’ and ‘American Spirit’, all of which mix modern shiny pop palavers with classic alternative tactics. The end results are a touch like the mythical missing link between The 1975 and Placebo but with perhaps an added splash of Smashing Pumpkins, a waft of The War On Drugs and a crafty thimbleful of The Cure here and there.

It’s onstage where the fragrant theatrics and occasional bellowing outbursts of Jacob really hit their straps, arms a’twirling and fringe a’whirling as he embodies the snarling / smiling sadness of the boys club behind him. And if these anthems for the broken-hearted sound like the soundtrack to immense teenage angst then little wonder – Sad Boys Club have been dabbling in the dark art of songwriting since their pre-teens and some of those furiously excellent singles were written when they were barely 15 years old.

Back then, other kids at school were into Bombay Bicycle Club, Yuck and Theme Park. The older kids at school meanwhile were actually IN those bands. Happily, familial circumstances ensured that the nascent Sad Boys had full access to the Bicycle Club’s studio facilities at the bottom of the garden. The story might have started there, but the plot is only just starting to thicken…
