The Bohicas The Making Of on 180g LP + Download
Quickly building a stellar reputation on the back of a series of singles introducing their melodic, snarling guitar pop, The Bohicas release their anticipated debut album The Making Of on Domino Recording Co. The 11-track offering was produced by Mark Rankin (Queens Of The Stone Age, Bombay Bicycle Club), Chris ‘Merrick’ Hughes (Tears For Fears, Adam And The Ants) and Oli Bayston (Toy, Boxed In).
The Making Of lands blow after blow. Featuring early singles "XXX" and "Swarm," alongside Radio 1 playlisted "To Die For" and "Where You At," the album is two barrels' worth of electrifying tunes and crackling 21st Century rock and roll. The Bohicas are rock and roll painted in vivid primary colors. Hi def, loud, fast, shiny and above all fun. A barrage of killer hooks, razor blade riffs and choruses that slap you in the face, grab your hand and lead you onto the dance floor. All shot through with pulp imagery torn from the pages of a graphic novel.
The Bohicas are Dominic McGuinness, drummer Brendan Heaney, guitarist Dominic John and bassist Adrian Acolatse. The band’s story began in Essex where, as schoolmates, McGuinness, Heaney and John first came together over a love of The Beatles, The Kinks, Ray Charles and the new wave of guitar bands who emerged at the start of the century after the scrag ends of Britpop had finally limped off.
The album’s artwork was created by illustrator Tomer Hanuka. “The immediacy and impact of Tomer's style marries perfectly to how we want our music to sound,” explains McGuinness. “The subject of most of the songs is a boy longing for a girl. We thought the cover should be inviting and dangerous so we asked Tomer to draw someone who is about to fuck off into the future and this is your chance to join her.”
