The Bohicas Release XXX and Swarm Video

Monday 18 November 2013

Domino have signed up The Bohicas as their latest hopeful rock ‘n’ roll band.

They are an up and coming four-piece from Essex and London who now join a list of well established names including Arctic Monkeys and Hot Chip who are also signed to the London-based label.

Whilst touring with Franz Ferdinand in Ibiza earlier this year, the group filmed their first video. It features two of their songs, XXX and Swarm, making it unlike any other modern music video and more like a short film, giving us an insight into what they have to offer.

The script was written by the band’s frontman, Dominic McGuinness, and his brother Eugene, highlighting their hands-on approach and willingness to get involved in all aspects of production.

The video seems like a teaser clip from a movie full of heartbreak, endless regrets and lots of alcohol – a cocktail of typical teenage antics. The songs effortlessly feed into one another, becoming a six minute song that you’ll wish was even longer.

Their sound is arresting, and with only two songs released that seem to be like a British Kings Of Leon with a menacing streak, their future looks to be a promising one.

The Bohicas will be touring the UK throughout this month and will be performing at the Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen in London for the Monster and NME Radar Tour on November 21.

All dates for upcoming gigs and tickets can be found on their website: www.thebohicas.com
