Track of the Day #121: Book Group – Late Show
Posted by Neil Wilson
My Track of the Day choice today is actually one that should have featured weeks back. My excuse is that I got so used to hearing the track from our Scottish Fiction Session with Book Group, back in October, that I assumed it had already been a Track of the Day when it actually came out on 4th December. How foolish!
So let’s rectify that right now! Everyone’s favourite Edinburgh Thunder-Pop group Book Group returned at the start of this month with a brand new single Late Show. The track is evidence that Book Group have worked on expanding their sound with wailing guitars showing a little more freedom, whilst the rise and fall of the synths are delightful. Fans of the band won’t be left scratching their heads either as Late Show is solidly built on already established Book Group ground; strong pop hooks, infectious melodies, and clever word plays.
If this is your first time hearing the track, don’t worry about being late to Late Show. Book Group will be glad you made it.
