Boola Roo Release Debut Single, ‘Show Me Love’
Born out of lockdown, Boola Roo (band) are a 3 piece electro rock band from London. Their self
produced debut single, Show Me Love, has been mixed by Ruadhri Cushnan (Ed Sheeran, Half Moon Run, Mumford & Sons) and it’s available from today, 29 August 2022, on digital platforms including Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Napster and Amazon Music. You can listen to the song here.
Even the briefest of exposure to the song reveals that Boola Roo have something intriguing going on with Show Me Love. Drifting in to view, with acoustic guitars augmenting the atmospheric synths underpinning the track, the music builds steadily. The well-observed lyrics have a dark undertone (“Talk to me through gritted teeth/Your cutting words so bittersweet/I can’t enough”) which works in juxtaposition with the uplifting and hopeful melody. In broader terms, the song tells the story of an individual taking sadistic pleasure in a tormenting relationship – a theme which many can relate to in the 21st century world.
Show Me makes for a satisfying introduction to Boola Roo’s world and it’s a song which could well be embraced as one of the best songs of 2022.
Inspired by 90s alt-pop and rock royalty The Verve, Moby and The Cardigans, Boola Roo have been influenced by some of music’s most enduring names and they are hoping to cast a long shadow of their own across the latter half of 2022. Show Me Love reveals they are staking out their terrain and their nostalgic and moody sound is sure to be heard echoing around the circuit’s biggest venues and festival fields in the very near future. The band have much more music to come, but for now, you can find out more information about Boola Roo by visiting their Instagram page
