Supreme Texan psych juggernaut, White Denim's James Petralli recently found himself with a batch of material which didn't quite fit in with his day job.
Deciding to forge a solo project, Bop English was born. Working with Bloods and Biscuits, the singer's debut solo release is due to be available from April 13th.
As a preview, Petralli has placed new track 'Dani's Blues (It Was Beyond Our Control)' online. It's a fun introduction, with the chiming piano riff recalling early 70s AM pop – think Paul McCartney's initial solo releases, those early Elton John albums or even ELO at their most creative.
Traces of psychedelia still linger, meaning that this is no ordinary homage.
