Boomkat Product Review:
Welsh chap Euros Childs used to be the frontman in psychedelic tunesters and NME faves Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, but since last year he's been flying solo and 'Bore Da' is his second solo album in as many years. It ain't half bad either, and even though it's all sung in Welsh, which isn't really a strong language for me I have to say, it's pretty captivating at times. 'Bore Da' apparently means 'good morning' and there couldn't be a better way to describe the record - a blissfully naïve collection of happy-go-lucky pop songs, the best comparison my sleep-deprived head can come up with is with Fonal's TV Resistori. Those crazy Finns share a similar wild abandon (and tendency to sing in their natively odd language) with Childs, and when you reach the Casio Keyboard led sing-along of 'Henry A Matilda Supermarketsuper' there will be no doubt in your mind that Childs shares that Finnish vodka-drenched insanity. Fair enough the guttural Welsh accent is not going to be appreciated by everyone, but remember what they said about Finnish? There's plenty of peculiar pop on offer here, just don't let that language barrier hold you back.
