Listen to a new song from California's Boy Scouts.
Taylor Vick is the brainchild behind Boy Scouts. While many artists on the West Coast record in garages, Vick chooses her bedroom as the canvas for crafting charming and confessional lo-fi songs. We are thrilled to premiere the first track off Homeroom Breakfast, her debut album on Mt. Home Arts. "July 9 2015" opens with Vick crooning, "Strangers try to read me / And I am out of coffee / I don't know what's worse" – it's these soft and sharp expressions that shape the song (and album as a whole) throughout. Listen to the new song below and catch her at playing shows in Philly and Brooklyn later this week.
Taylor Vick of Boy Scouts on "July 9 2015":
"July 9th 2015 was the day I wrote the song. It was the end of a really transformative period of my life, I had just finished college and moved back home. I was journaling in the coffee shop across the street from my apartment and it was one of the first moments I allowed myself to be like, "what just happened?!!" instead of "ok now what? what's next now that you've graduated?" it felt like I was losing sight of all the growth and experiences I just had because I was constantly thinking about what was expected of me to do next. I just wanted to write about the present moment and about the things I was sure of instead of allowing myself to be engulfed by my uncertainty."
