Watch: Bouts – Missteps

We’ve a lot of time for Dublin indie-rock band Bouts. For us, they personify the best things of the genre: simultaneously perfectly loose and very tight, they tip their collective hat in the general direction of their (largely Nineties, U.S.) influences whilst continuing to carve out their own sound; one that allows seems to place joyousness slap bang in the middle.

Taken from their a forthcoming, five-track EP, set for release in January, the band have returned after a nigh on two year break away with ‘Missteps’, a track bursting with the band’s instantly likeable sound. If you’re yet to delve deeper, check out their debut LP, Nothing Good Gets Away, immediately after checking the new single out right below.
