Show Boy returns with a self professed blu-wave number for new track Anemone, complete with a video accompaniment directed by Amanda Tooke. It is a tropical slice of synth-pop set to a visual backdrop of Britain’s current Mediterranean-esque scorching summer sun. The track follows on from recent release Heart Is An Applean 80’s indebted pop triumph sprinkled with glimpses of Prince, and recalling the golden age of the music video with a stop-motion mini masterpiece.

Opening with a groove-addled bass line that sets the scene for a tight-knit three and a half minutes of direct and joyous synth-pop, Anemone is bathed in shimmering summer synths and an off-kilter groove that will see you headed for the nearest neglected British seaside resort to slather yourself in factor 30.

It’s no secret that Show Boy knows his way around a pop song, the release sees songwriter Jovis Lane shelve the more guitar focused elements of his sound to promote a more beat-driven soundscape, as 80’s synth-pop contrasts with hip hop production. Hear it and believe it.


WOOZE – ‘Hello Can You Go’ – A groove addled, art-rock introduction.

Barbudo – ‘Secret Admirer’ – Revel in this groove-ridden summer number.

SILVA – ‘Like A Doll’ – Touching and intimate dream pop from London newcomers.
